New: The GeneaNet ‘Email Alert by Individual’

Posted by admin on Oct 28, 2011

GeneaNet has launched a new powerful feature called ‘Email Alert by Individual’!

The ‘Individual Alert’ and the ‘Cross-Database Alert’ have been merged in a single Email Alert so GeneaNet Club Privilege members can now receive accurate emails that aggregate the latest entries by name (with alternate spelling), first name (with alternate spelling), place, year, occupation and spouse.

And these Email Alerts can be automatically generated from the data in their Online Family Tree!

Select the ‘Searches & Alerts’ item in the drop down menu at the top right of the screen:


The menu in the left sidebar has changed:

– The item ‘Favorite Searches’ is now called ‘Email Alert by Surname’
– The items ‘Individual Alert’ and the ‘Cross-Database Alert’ have been merged to ‘Email Alert by Individual’


Configure Automatic Email Alerts

You can create Automatic Email Alerts from a selection of individuals in your family tree to receive a weekly email that aggregates the latest entries:


Note that the option ‘Sosa-Stradonitz (Ahnentafel) numbered individuals only’ is forced on the family trees that contain more than 2 000 individuals to limit the number of generated Email Alerts.

In most cases, if you select the option ‘Only individuals with one or less parent’, you will automatically create Email Alerts for the individuals who are at the end of lines in your family tree.

If you select the option ‘Exclude results with no additional information’, the results will not appear in your Email Alert If the GeneaNet member doesn’t have any additional information on the ancestors (parents) of the individual.


You can edit the generated Automatic Email Alerts and you can manually add some others:


Edit your Email Alert or click ‘Delete Email Alert’:


Remember that you can easily create new Email Alerts by making a search in the GeneaNet database and clicking ‘Create a new Individual Alert’ at the bottom of the search results list:
