Geni.com - A Family Tree

Inadvertently locked up (here)

A family tree that goes back generations
Can be a convenient tool
To check on ties of relations

Of brothers and sisters
And their next-of-kin
Of near cousins and relatives
And their off-springs

To keep track of days
Memorable to them
Birthdays, anniversaries
All reminded through email
A week before as prompts

All done automatically

To discover long lost relatives
To cement old ties
Try it and keep the info moving
The format is FaceBook styled
With pictures, videos all thrown in
Provided you did the uploading
All these through Geni.com
Downloaded at your convenience
And it’s all for free!

If you missed your cousin’s wedding
You could view it
After someone's done an uploading!

Get it done
It's a service to everyone
And it’s lots of fun!

Inspired by Theme Thursday prompt 'Tree'

  1. I loved this, I have been tracing my family tree for a few years now and it's been so interesting.

  7. It's so ironic that just tonight I was discussing this with my mother. I'll have to check it out.

  8. Hank, loved the thought. I just can't stand most of the relatives I know already! Great poem, though, and an innovative way to pass on the idea to others. Amy

  9. I loved your take on the tree prompt, Hank. I've never heard of geni.com. Now I'm wondering if I really want to shake my family tree and see what apples fall off :)

    The dogs went on a major hike today, so they're very happy - we finally had a break from the super heat and humidity (and they are really good buddies - they'd be lost without each other).
