The GeneaNet ‘Email Alert by Individual’

Posted by admin on Nov 14, 2014

GeneaNet has a powerful feature called ‘Email Alert by Individual’.

Premium members can receive accurate emails with the latest entries by name (with name variants), by first name (with name variants), by place, by year, by occupation and by spouse.

These Email Alerts can be automatically generated from your GeneaNet family tree!

Click the ‘Email Alert by Individual’ item in the drop down menu at the top right of the screen:

Configure Automatic Email Alerts

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

If your family tree contains more than 2,000 individuals, the ‘Sosa-Stradonitz (Ahnentafel) numbered individuals only’ option is automatically selected.

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

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


You can edit your Automatic Email Alerts and you can add new ones:

Edit your Email Alert then click ‘OK’, or click ‘Delete’:

To easily create a new Email Alert, make a search in the GeneaNet database then click ‘Create a new Email Alert’ at the bottom of the search results list:
