Last year, we also have enhanced many features.

An great enhancement promised as early as 2006 was released in April: the new Online Family Trees.

GeneaNet - bilan de l'année 2007New themes and interface that makes much easier to enter, view and edit your data. These changes were very discussed but are now a great success.

Two new features were added to the online family trees: Sosa-Stradonitz numbers can be viewed and you can write a full family history with pictures, tables, links, etc. Some kind of personal website. Printing your family trees is easier with the new intuitive interface.

No more birthdays forgotten! Subscribe for free to the birthdays alerts.

You can simply embed a Surname Tag Cloud to your personal website.

The Online Records interface has been fixed and it is now more intuitive.

GeneaBar, the GeneaNet Toolbar, is now compatible with any antivirus software.

The recommendations system has been completly changed. You can answer to the requests or ignore the system if you can't find any interest to it.

A powerful and fastest Cross-Database Search system will help you finding out news ancestors and relatives!

New Year Report: New Features

And so another year has passed us by. This has been a busy year and it's time to see what we did!

Many new features have been released during the year 2007.

GeneaNet - bilan de l'année 2007GeneaStar has joined the GeneaNet "galaxy". This free website is intending to check off the famous people genealogies. You can instantly compare your family tree against the GeneaStar database and send us any genealogy that you own or that could be read on the Internet.

Another new feature called "All Cousins" is intending to make your data share easier and is like a web community. You can manage and save your address book, send and receive messages, and view your contacts on a map.

This year, this feature should help you to find out the common ancestors between you and your contacts.

In the summer, the "Free Online Records" feature has launched. A large part of you GeneaNet users wanted to upload records. You can now upload some in Excel file format. They will be indexed in the GeneaNet database in a few minutes and available for free to anyone!
