Global Family Reunion, Family History Challenge #1

The first challenge was to join a collaborative genealogy site. 

They suggested Geni, Wikitree, Familysearch and MyHeritage.  I am on all 4.  I am not sure why MyHeritage counts, it is not exactly a collaborative genealogy site?  OneGreatFamily is a collaborative genealogy site but wasn't included (its not free, which may be one reason for not including it.)  I also have a tree there, but dont currently subscribe/maintain it.

Geni is still my favorite of the collaborative genealogy sites.  I use Geni daily.  If you are also on Geni, I would love to hear from you and what are relationship is, and maybe you can help me find a path to AJ!

One of the ways I like to use Geni to find possible relationships with DNA matches.

In the past few weeks I have had several cousins contact me on Geni, including some fairly close ones.

Here is my profile at Geni.
