Re: Wrong people on family trees on genealogy sites #general


E. Randol Schoenberg
 

There is so much misinformation about Geni from people who don’t really use it.  The critic Alan Ehrlich, for example, has added just 34 profiles on Geni.  Geni is as good as we all make it.  For those of us who build our trees there, it has been a tremendously valuable experience.  Collaboration is the key to making real advances in genealogy, and at the moment, Geni is the best tool we have.
 
My blog from 2016 describes many of the advantages of Geni.
 
And this blog from 2014 answers pretty much all of the unwarranted criticism. 
 
I’ll make one request.  If you don’t use Geni, that’s fine.  But just please stop talking about it and telling people not to use it.
