"You can start creating your family tree on our homepage through (what we hope is) a fun simple interface. Itâ€™s extremely fast to build your tree by clicking the yellow arrows in the direction you want to add new family members. As youâ€™ll notice, there is no software download required, no lengthy signup process, and no fees. There is another key advantage of Geni: When you add a relative, you can also enter his or her email address. In that case your relative will receive an email inviting him or her to join your tree. By clicking a link, your relative will be taken to the same family tree youâ€™ve been working on, but re-centered from that relativeâ€™s point of view."
