Geni Adds Filters

Hollywood-based Geni, which operates an online site for networking with family and tracking family trees, released a new feature Wednesday that allows its users to filter out cousins on the site. According to Geni, it has a new "hide" filter which will help users find cousins using the site that they haven't met yet. Geni's web site allows family members and relatives to collaborate on family trees and genealogy, as well as share news and other information. Geni is funded by Charles River Ventures and the Founders Fund, and is headed by ex-Paypal co-founder David Sacks.
