Branching into Family Trees

Courtesy of TechCrunch, Geni.com is one of my new online obsessions. It allows you to create family trees and collaborate with other family members.

It’s hardly perfect. For instance, it’s slow, and you can’t put that a couple wasn’t married (the closest you can do is "divorced"), so it needs some fine tuning. I also haven’t toyed much with advanced features; I’m wondering how well it prints and shares offline. It’s the most addictive site I’ve found online since Yahoo Answers and Moola, and far more meaningful than the first and useful than the latter.
