The place to suggest a feature is in the forums, but here we can track commonly requested suggestions. Feel free to add a suggestion here, or comment on an existing suggestion (indent it using colons, and sign your name at the end of your comment).

GEDCOM import

GEDCOM import would allow users to import their existing family trees from other programs into Geni. Note that GEDCOM export is already implemented as an alpha feature.

This feature can only be implemented once tree merging support is complete. --Ilya 17:02, 7 August 2007 (PDT)

Tree merging

The ability to merge two trees without creating duplicate entries.

Translation to other languages

To get involved go to the Localization page.

Add events and timelines

Add location profile

Public Trees

Trees which anybody can view. For fictional trees (e.g. a Simpsons tree) or famous people (a British Royalty tree). There could be a page with all these trees listed (this could be lengthy). Public Trees could be accessed by a URL (e.g. The 'owner' of a public tree could invite other Geni members to collaborate on the tree.

I think this would be a really cool feature and a good way to publisize Geni. Rather than saying check out this site where you can create your family tree you could give someone a link where they can see a famous tree and then might be motivated to create their own. --Fluteflute 02:24, 16 August 2007 (PDT)

Public Developer API

If Geni had this, you guys could probably solve a lot of your feature requests instantly

Animated History

Create a plugin to the map program that allows you to "play back" family history, based on where ancestors were born and where they moved to.

GEDCOM Exporting With Media

GEDCOM Exporting with Media, such as Picture and Video, this I assume would mean that media would need to be made "Publicly Available" so the programs such as GRAMPS can import this media.

  • This would be a great feature to enable users to backup there trees if someone deletes anything*
