Geni Enhances Stats, Adds Gift Subscriptions

Los Angeles-based Geni, an online genealogy and social networking site, upgraded the firm's services last night, adding new statistics features and gift accounts. According to the firm, it now allows users to view statistics on profiles, and has added the ability of users to give "Geni Pro" accounts as a gift to relatives. The gift accounts will cost $50, and allow recipients to gain access to the site's additional features. Geni allows users to create online, Web 2.0-style family trees, along with other social tools.
