Geneanet Retires Its Old Family Tree Software

On June 30, 2014, Geneanet will retire its old family tree software and all the members will have to use the new one.

Some months ago, we have released a new family tree software. It's not only faster and easier to use, but it's also more effective in ways that our users have been requesting. Since then, the old family tree software was still available.

What Happens To Your Data After You're Dead?

You have a Geneanet family tree and you have uploaded family pictures and archival records. What will happen to your data after you're dead?

This is the question that many people ask.

Who owns your data on Geneanet?

You own your Geneanet data.

Each Geneanet data is linked to a single account and every member can delete their data at any time (family tree, pictures, archival records, etc.)

Geneanet don't keep your data and personal information after you have deleted your account.

Geneanet will never sell your data and will never share it with third parties.

And what happens to your data after you're dead?

If Geneanet is notified about the death of a member, their account and their data are immediately deleted.

But the the family of the dead can ask Geneanet not to delete the account. If so, data will still be available to Geneanet visitors but newsletters will not be send anymore to the given email address. This is a good way to memorialise the genealogy research of a loved one.

Geneanet Is Now Available In Portuguese!

We are pleased to announce that Geneanet is now available in Portuguese!

In 2009 and 2010, we have added the Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish translation, and today, we are extending our activities to Portugal and Brazil. This is a new step for Geneanet and our values of sharing.

Portugal and Brazil are countries with interesting history and a large community of genealogy enthusiasts. There are many archives and they are of good quality, so there are many discoveries to come for those who have roots and relatives there.

New genealogists will be able to join Geneanet and to build and share their family tree, and it will serve all of us.

Welcome to the new version of Geneanet.

Note: Of course, you can view data from Portugal and Brazil even if you are not using the Portuguese version of the Geneanet website.
