Genes Reunited now has new features to store family records, photographs, etc.
The family history website Genes Reunited has added some new features, and says: “[These features include] a Keepsafe, for digitally storing all of your family records, photos and memories and Relation Profiles, where you can view and edit details about each individual in your tree.
“The Keepsafe is a unique and organised way to collate your family history. It’s a place for members to safely store and share documents, from photos and certificates to maps and letters. It’s available to all members, who’ll have the option to open their images to the public, keep them private or share them with other members, family and friends. They’ll even be able to share their Keepsafe on Facebook. At launch today there are over 2.7 million private images already uploaded to Keepsafe.
“Relation Profiles are automatically created for each relation Genes Reunited members add to their family trees. [Each profile] includes a clear timeline, notes section and immediate family tree. There’s a section prompting members what to do next in their research.
“You can edit the details and these changes will be reflected in the tree. You can view any photos or records that are attached to the person too. Each profile can also be printed, so you can share your discoveries with your family.
“Genes Reunited automatically creates ‘Hot Matches’ where members who have the same relations in their family tree are matched with each other. Many members have collected rich data on their relatives and having the option to share this with other members can be very beneficial to their research. At launch, there will be over 260 million profiles already created. That’s equivalent to over 4 records for every man, woman and child in the UK .”
