Geni Creates Lab Effort, Translation Support

West Hollywood-based, the online family tree and genealogy site backed by the Founders Fund and Charles River Ventures, told its users today that it has created a new "Geni Lab" for experimental features from the firm. As part of the lab, the company said it has created a new feature to enable translation of pages on the site, tapping Google Translate for the translations. Geni said its Geni Labs effort will allow users to experiment with features that the company is working on, with no guarantee that they will be updated or supported.
