The advantage of Geni is the ability to merge "trees" and spread into
direction, one has not thought or sought before.
In my opinion, this is also the major disadvantage. It gives the possibility
to unknown "hackers" to tamper with "my" tree.
I have been using for years the genealogy software called MyHeritage Family
Tree Builder, and am quite satisfied with it.
It protects the tree I am developing, by preventing merging, without my
consent.
But, at the same time I can open a family site on the internet, with all
the tree information. I can invite members to search the site,
and they inturn can endorse more members to join.
There is a function called "smart match" which searches other data bases and
find for me similarities. This is sort of virtual merging.
