“Genes Reunited Review”

Written on: 26/05/2011 by VivHerts (1 review written)

Genes Reunited (GR) does not listen to its members. It is not a social networking site but is a dedicated Genealogy/Family History website. The site is not moderated and cyber bulling has been rife in the past. This really needs addressing, especially moderation on boards. GR seems to think the older members are a pain in the rear. Many have been members since the conception of the original website 'Genes Connected' and have seen the so called 'changes' come and go. Members know when things… Read Full Review

“Has no direction”

Written on: 26/05/2011 by aileenmwallace (1 review written)

I have been a member of this site since conception but I find it now has little to offer. The admin is amateurish to say the least and the uploading of trees I have found never works properly. The searches, with exception of the family trees, are limited to England and Wales and very little else is offered. I now have 5 individual trees as my original tree became too cumbersome and I dread to think what would happen if I tried to upload it now. I continue paying my subscription but seldom use… Read Full Review

You don't mention the Community Boards Aileen. To me, these are the best part of GR....lots of helpful members with great expertise in searching. I have kept my tree at a reasonable size because I have no interest in extending it to unmanageable size. I use the site on a daily basis.

“Happy with site”

Written on: 25/05/2011 by Amazinggrace08 (1 review written)

It is a great site, full of willing people who take the time to help and assist each other. I think it represents good value for money except possibly in the following instances: Hot Matches - These tend to only come through every few montsh and can't get past the letters A & B. It is very frustrating when you have over 4,000 people in your tree yet you don't receive any matches. Lack of Scottish records. Now that GR is owned by Bright Solid I was hoping that we would see some benefits in… Read Full Review

I cannot see the 'value for money' when there are different rates for people using the same service. Some people pay 4x as much as others. No other website sets a wall between its members.

“Deteriorated”

Written on: 25/05/2011

I find the site to be slipping in value, for what it has and for the price it offers I feel money is their object. It needs better communication between members and between admin, there are far too many discrepancies, not enough regulation. I feel the company needs to moderate the site yet they also need to keep an overall fairness to each member. Genes reunited has no equality with it's members, it tends to hold favourites and allows the membership cost to be thrown in the face of new… Read Full Review

“You get what you pay for.”

Written on: 25/05/2011

Genes Reunited is a good spring board into the world of Genealogy. Boards are simple to use, and the GR community offer free advice to those doing their tree.. Not as many resources as other bigger more expensive FH sites but this reflects in the basic subscription price. … Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2011

I joined Genes Reunited after watching Long Lost family. Genes Reunited is a great place to srat your family history, they have a great community section and it is free to build yor tree. You only have to pay when you want to view records, but you can do that on a pay as you go basis which I find convenient. If I keep using the records I might take out one of their subscriptions as they seem to be much cheaper than Ancestry… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2009 by Julie316 (40 reviews written)

GenesReunited is a pretty good web site. They have a lot of members so you are bound to find someone who shares your ancestry. I have had a lot of contacts off genes reunited whereas with Lost Cousins I've had two, and I was already in contact with one of them. By allowing you to join for free, you can see how many people have your relatives on their family tree. You need to pay if you want to contact someone or view their family tree details. You can control who sees your own family tree… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/10/2008 by Gourmet (1 review written)

If the message boards were sorted out into a modern format that I am happy with (and if the topics stuck to genealogy) then it may be worth a visit for me.
Buying credits here is the most expensive way to do research I find - better use ancestry. Therefore I do not recommend Genes Reunited.co.uk… Read Full Review

The paying members of this website who help other members with their brick walls on the 'Find Ancestors' discussion board are fabulous I can say from personal experience with the help I have had there. Unfortunately the way the boards are operated by the company is not as fabulous. The new 'Find living relatives' board in particular is a waste of time and money for the people using it and a vexing situation for people concerned about personal privacy on the internet. Sadly it seems that the company is more interested in the fees paid by people drawn in by its publicity campaigns than it is in making their experience a productive one. Top marks to the members of the site but not so much to the company running it.

Written on: 20/05/2006 by Bitza5 (1 review written)

Genes Reunited is the best site I have been on to trace family members and to do name searches. It is a great all-rounder, unlike some sites where you have to pay just to start your family tree and look up names. I bet this site has the most paying members and non-paying members. I would be stuck without Genes Reunited… Read Full Review
