  • Looking for any info on William Mark Lyons, Lincolnshire 1793
    I found other incomplete profiles on different genealogy sites which stated that his parents were Thomas Lyons from Lincolnshire and Ann Stodart (also listed as Anne Stoddard/Stoddart) from Durham, England. There are, however, no sources listed so I am not sure if this is factual. I have added their information to our geni.com family tree in the hopes that I can find matches, but no such luck.

  • Edgar Atheling Descendants?
    Now, I don't know what happened here, whether its a glitch or someone on geni.com made a mistake, broke a link or this is an actual inconsistency in the records, but both Sir Nicholas and Sir Richard have sons named Nicholas and Richard, both of their Nicholases die as children, and their Richards share the same webpage. I don't know how that happened, just maybe we can't distinguish which son of Muriel is whom,... Source: about 1 year ago
  • What is one of the dumbest things a person has said to you?
    Link just directs me to geni.com. Maybe because I'm not logged in? Source: about 1 year ago
  • I am 18th cousins 8 times removed to James Monroe, the 5th President of the US!

  • Strange Encounter on Geni.com: Help Needed to Navigate Unusual Situation
    TL;DR: While filling up my family tree on geni.com, I came across a user who claims to be a priest and has made over 15k entries, including updates to my ancestors' details. However, I discovered that this person is someone I am acquainted with and is definitely not a priest. Seeking advice on how to proceed. Source: about 1 year ago

  • connecting with my roots
    If you are still searching for people and connections then geni.com is the place. And if you come around independence day then on 24th February around 07:30 there will be a flag ceremony at Toompea... Later on, you can go and have a glass of cognac, tea and potato salad(or kiluvõileib) in oldtown cafes. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Are there any programs for creating family trees?
    There is also geni.com where you can enter your family tree and people can view it. Caveat, it went from being free to $$$ and was taken over and now they want subs. Source: over 1 year ago
  • I’m not an expert in history, but I’m confused how my 9th great grandmother died in Massachusetts, could this be from colonialism of the USA and also warfare with native Americans in Massachusetts at the time? But I’m also confused because her husband died in Somerset in England..
    Geni.com has both her and her husband John Allen being born in Connecticut instead of England. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Help - How can I find Finnish family history?
    1) The lowest hanging fruit is trying to find work done by others from sites such as geni.com, MyHeritage etc. At least I have been able to get very good information from such sites by searching with family names. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Help - How can I find Finnish family history?
    Try geni.com I can trace most of my Finnish family roots here until they jump to Germany & Switzerland in beginning of 1600. Source: over 1 year ago
  • I'm researching my Finnish side - can you help me translate these names (and dates) once more? I've finally found the right record on a difficult line on our Finnish side!
    The wive can actually be found from geni.com! see: https://www.geni.com/people/Maria-Kokko/6000000182720557839. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Can someone from finland read these names and Text on an old photo?
    Have you checked geni.com? Because some of your Finnish relatives might have done a family tree there, so you might find stuff there. Usually when people are into genealogy they make quite extensive trees and when you know names and birthdates etc, you can check if they belong to someone's tree. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Need to find parents
    She is on geni.com which incorrectly lists her birth date as 1831. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • DNA upload sites
    I uploaded my DNA to geni.com, but I haven't gotten any value from it. Ancestry & 23&Me have been the best for me. I found my mom's bio parents. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Might Research but records might be scant
    Trying to find the parents of Ichiel Distilyator (listed as I. Michell Distiller on findagrave), born probably in Ukraine in 1845 and dying in 1915 in Baltimore, I know Ichiel also has 4 Siblings, and im also trying to find the parents of Ichiel's wife, Gitel Greenspun (listed as Goldie Distiller on findagrave), Gitel was probabl born in 1855 in Ukraine (geni.com for some reason lists her as being born in 1831)... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Austrian Citizenship for Descendants Questions and Info
    I filled out the questionnaire and I'm not sure where to go from there. I sent an email to the Austrian Consulate in NYC (I am from NJ) but haven't received a reply. Should I wait or is there more I can do? I found my ancestors on geni.com but not sure how to get the proof they require. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Family Tree of the House of Bourbon-Bhopal, The Indian branch of the Bourbon Dynasty
    Now some of this stuff may not be correct. I say that because my only source was geni.com and the Facebook page of the Royal House of Bourbon-Bhopal. Source: about 2 years ago
