The GeneaNet Cross-Database Search & Alerts

Posted by admin on Jul 22, 2011

The GeneaNet Cross-Database Search is a powerful feature that automatically compares your family tree with the entire GeneaNet database.

GeneaNet Club Privilege members can limit the search to their Sosa-Stradonitz (Ahnentafel) numbered individuals to compare their direct line with the GeneaNet database.

The GeneaNet Cross-Database Alert is a weekly email that aggregates the latest entries (Reserved for Club Privilege members). You can also view the history of your Cross-Database Alerts in the last three months.
