“I was enticed by the offer of a free subscription....”

Written on: by 438Carlson (1 review written)

I was enticed by the offer of a free subscription. However this didn't mean I could enter the site (!) so I registered for a one month subscription (£6) to Lives of 1st world war (genes reunited). I received an e mail requesting me to confirm before being able to use the site. The link did not work. I was also informed that my subscription was NOT for one month but renewable. I could cancel this on the site - which I was now been blocked from using because I could not confirm. I do believe… Read Full Review

“Genes Reunited : Impossible to get refund ”

Written on: by Mopardave (1 review written)

I cancelled my membership because they don't provide much for the fee. After cancelling they are still charging my credit card with fees. Trying to contact them is futile since their support e-mail address keeps bouncing back. BEWARE < BEWARE Read Full Review

“Waste of Money”

Written on: by Driasa (1 review written)

Compared to other sites this site stinks. The records are limited, the searches difficult and the number of times you are told there is a problem with the site repetitive and eventually boring. I would like my money back.I joined because of the promise that I may find information that was not available to me at other sites - this has not happened… Read Full Review

“GenesReunited - Member since 2003 - but no more..”

Written on: by Snook (2 reviews written)

I have been a happy member of GR since 2003. It's been a good site for the amateur (which I still am!) and I've enjoyed being able to build my tree, and the communications from other members have been very useful. It was a site that was easy to navigate and use, and very good value. My membership was renewed automatically each year, which was fine - and I was always informed when this was due to be deducted. However, a few months ago I was advised that my card details were now out of date and… Read Full Review

Valeriaminus3's Response to Snook's Review

Written on:

I have a problem too, again with a card that was no longer valid. I went on the site to renew but could not find a 'renewal' option, only a new month's subscription which is what I did with a different card. I went right onto the site, accessed some historical records then logged out. The next time I tried to view the records i was told I had to be a Platinum member to do so and referred me to the subscription page. To cut a long story short, I am at the point where my credit card company is going to investigate this, because the payment has clearly shown up in my monthly statement as genesreunited having been paid. This GR will not accept! When this has been resolved I will cancel my membership as I too have been a member since 2005, but no more. This is an issue which should be easily resolved when I sent them proof of my payment, but they just stonewall and ask me for credit card details to be sent to them in an e-mail, which they say is safe and which I do not!

“Avoid this website.”

Written on:

I got a subscription to Genes Reunited but I soon found that I had made a big mistake. The tree that you set up is unwieldy to move around in. It is also incredibly difficult to see what relation people are to each other. If you click on someone else the whole tree view changed. So I started using the family tree on Ancestry. The search is very difficult and unless you know exactly how the name of the person is written on the document then it is almost impossible to find anything… Read Full Review

“Not The Best”

Written on:

This is definitely not the best website for research .Yes,it's easy to build your tree but only if you already have plenty of information to begin.There is helpfull advice from some members who search for you and I have found a few usefull facts but they are not happy if you do anything wrong and they soon let you know.I have searched a number of names who I know to be on certain census but can't be found on genes reunited ,why I don't understand.Try Ancestry it's definitely the best ,more… Read Full Review

“Two weeks of chaos”

Written on:

A colleague of mine recommended this site to me and and I had a look at what they could offer, they held themselves out to be a well run and well managed site, so I decided to join. The assistance you can get from the volunteers on the message boards is outstanding, however that is about the only good service provided as Genes Reunited personnel really need an intensive course in customer relations. For nearly the past two weeks the site has been in a state of total chaos, and after the… Read Full Review

“angry being fooled by the promise that registration is...”

Written on:

I dont mind sites charging for services thats fine. What make me angry is when a service says it free to register and then when you enter all your details and create an account only then do you find that you cant use the site without paying. Free to register implies some form of free access of a fremium service but apparently not? Destroyed any sense of credibility or trust for me. BYE… Read Full Review

“Auto Renew, who knew”

Written on:

Took a one month platinum subscription and was not really impressed when trying to research names and dates I knew as fact. Imagine my surprise when I apparently "auto renewed" my one month subscription. A reminder would have been an acceptable option, shame on you Genes Reunited, very underhand practice… Read Full Review

“way to go”

Written on: by sailingby (1 review written)

No, no, no. During several years Genes Reunited membership 2 changes of ownership. ITV updates very good. Since take over by Scotland's BrightSolid the main idea seems to be to make money for Alex Salmond. After months of network chaos (now fixed) Gru embarked on a major makeover which after several abortive attempts now seems to be established. The website does not support the old 1024x768 resolution - vert. res. must be at least 900. No tablet / smartphone suport whatsoever. The site… Read Full Review

“Not a patch on the old genes reunited.”

Written on:

I have come back after a gap of a few years.I was surprised at the amount of changes taken place here.After a few hours I quickly learned that genes was not the site it used to be,and felt somewhat as if that spirit that made genes a great place had gone.If you want a family tree site with records then I suggest you shop around.Genes is now just another one of those sites and there are plenty of them out there… Read Full Review

“Happy to rip people off”

Written on: by jonesj99 (0 reviews written)

Thought I'd try it with a one month plainum membersip. It was ok but I did not wish to renew so thought my one month membership would expire, but memberships are automatically on a automatic renewal basis which many including me were unaware of. I was only aware after they took another months subscription which they would not return. They claim an email was sent 14 days before renewal giving the opportunity to cancel but this was NOT the case. Had a coupple of emails from them wanting me to… Read Full Review
