I recently came across the online genealogy tool, Geni.com and I’m hooked.

Geni.com let’s you create a private online tree (you must be a member of Geni.com and have been invited – the default is that you be a family member – to view a given tree). You can manually enter your tree or start it by uploading a GEDCOM file.

Geni’s features foster family connectedness – there is a discussion forum, internal e-mail, special event reminders, an address book, and places to post photos and video. One feature I find quite interesting is Statistics which allows you to see, for example, how long your relatives have lived on average, where most were born, etc.

Geni is also interactive so there can be organic sharing of information.

Anyway, larger than the fun of its individual features is the potential that Geni.com represents for Grenadian genealogical research. Since Geni automatically shows you potential duplicate individuals in other trees, allows you to search its databases for potential matches and lets you link (with their agreement) to related trees, it presents the potential of mapping the whole island of Grenada.

As I dig further in my research, I become more and more certain that almost all Grenadians are somehow related. Geni.com could allow us to not only quickly fill in the blanks in our own trees but map Grenada.

So far, some Grenadian families are taking advantage of Geni. I’ve found trees that contain the following names so far:

BUCKMIRE

BAIN

BULLEN

CHARLES

FERGUSON

GLEAN

HOSTEN

HUGHES

NECKLES

LA GRENADE

MASON

MATHLIN

PREUDHOMME

RAPIER

RENWICK

STEELE

ST. BERNARD
