Geni.Com Updated again for March

Today as I was searching the web, I noticed their were new updates to the website. One of the first things I noticed is there spam to opt in to thier Pro Accounts. I liked it when it was on the side of the website, I dont like it when you are forced to click through just to get to the website.

There are a total of 5 new updates to, mostly a mix between pro accounts and free accounts.  Tree Statistics is a nice addition, but I believe some of the other websites provide a little more to their free accounts, it’s a good start.  Advanced search which is for pro accounts, so I can only really post what they say about it, as I still don’t have a Pro account.  The third feature is the ability to change your Family Tree name, which sounds interesting, I bet there will be some great tree names sprouting up now.  It also seems that birth orders have been fixed, and the ability to search by profiles you manage. 
All in all it’s a great month for Geni with all the updates they are pushing out.  I hope they keep at it, as with each update it gets harder to stay away from those Pro accounts. 

Belows is a better description of what has been added/fixed in the new updates:
