Discover the new Geneanet family tree home page

Posted by Jean-Yves on Sep 27, 2021

The Geneanet family tree home page did not change for many years. Discover all the changes we have made to this home page.

Many options were added over time and it became a bit confusing to find them. We hope that the new layout of the home page will help you manage and grow your family tree.

The Control Panel is the home page you see when you are logged in to your Geneanet account

  • Control panel: You can click the number of individuals to view the list of all individuals in the family tree, the number of admins to view the list of members who can edit your family tree, and the date of last update to view the history of updates in your family tree.
  • Tools: This section provides a quick access to some useful options: the list of inconsistencies, the list of possible duplicates, the list of unknown ancestors, and Search Tracker.
  • Favorite Persons: You can access and edit the family tree root person, the name of the owner of the family tree, and some other favorite persons you want to highlight.
