Geni Adds Tabs, Search Tools

West Hollywood-based Geni, the venture-backed, online family tree and networking site, said today that it has added a number of new features to its site, including the ability to search for similar profiles on the site, and improved access to popular features. According to Geni, the new features include the ability to look for profiles with similar names and birth and death dates, to help users find information on relatives that might have been entered by other users. In addition, the firm said it has created new tabs for accessing statistics and relatives on the site, among other navigational changes. Geni operates a service which lets users create their own Web 2.0-style family trees, network with relatives and family members, and share other family information.
