No Control. Bad Deal.

A long time friend has a cute saying, "It sounds good if you say it fast". That is Geni. You cannot delete your account! My children are posted and I have almost no control over photos or facts. Since Geni teamed with Myheritage.com the site is a nightmare. People you do not know can post relatives and take control. If you invite others to join your tree, you cannot control what they do, such as entering Mickey Mouse as a relative. Stay away.

In summary, I would not recommend Geni to a friend.
