New Geneanet option: The Search Tracker

Posted by Jean-Yves on Apr 26, 2021

As your family tree grows, it becomes difficult to see what information is missing. This is why we have launched a new option called the Search Tracker, and we hope that it will help you go even further in your genealogy research.

Of course, you must have a Geneanet family tree to access this option.

Go to any person in your family tree (note that this option will display information about the ancestry of this person).

Click “Print > Ancestry > Check” in the menu bar.

Tick “Search Tracker (individuals with date, place or source not found)” and select the number of generations you want to be displayed.

All ancestors for whom at least one event is not complete appear in the list. If all events are filled in, the ancestor is not listed.

By default, only births, marriages and deaths are displayed but you can tick “Show baptisms and burials” to also show these events.

A grey square means that the date, place or source is missing for an event, and you can click the pen icon to edit the individual or family.

A green tick means that the event is already sourced.

This option is in beta-test. Do not hesitate to send your suggestions in the forum or via Ticket Contact.
