Find a Kiwi launches Genes Connected
Find a Kiwi launches Genes Connected – now you can find your lost friends AND relations!
Is there a gaping hole in your family tree? Filling in the gaps has always presented a huge problem for many New Zealanders; with so many of our ancestors arriving on boats from far-off locations – not to mention the hordes of Kiwis who take off on their OE’s each year and decide to settle elsewhere in the world! As the thousands of dedicated NZ genealogists will testify, tracing your family tree can be a time consuming and often frustrating business. Until now that is!
Top reunion website Find a Kiwi ( http://www.findakiwi.co.nz) have recently launched their sister site Genes Connected in New Zealand. Part of the phenomenal Friends Reunited family, Genes Connected has already close to half a million registered users, five million names and some staggering success stories never before experienced on a genealogy website. Genes Connected is a genealogy site through which you can build your family tree and link to other branches being built by others all around the globe. By creating your family tree online, you can save time, fill in the missing pieces of your gene puzzle and connect with long lost relatives – or even those you never knew you had!
Find a Kiwi Regional Manager Jackie Gower can testify herself just how valuable Genes Connected can be. “My father passed away knowing precious little about his family tree; therefore I knew even less! So I was absolutely amazed when after just a few days of registering the spindly branches of my family tree online, a woman contacted me from the UK to tell me that my grandfather (who had died before I was born) was also in her family tree. After exchanging frequent emails, this lady has literally filled in a huge part of our tree on my father’s side, ranging back around 300 years. It even turned out that we were related to the old lady who used to live across the road from us!”
Whether you are a beginner
or seasoned genealogy researcher, Genes Connected is for
you. The site is simple and easy to navigate, following in
the footsteps of Find a Kiwi and Friends Reunited. The
principle is also the same in that the more people who
register, the more chances they will have of success. The
amazing array of success stories speak for themselves. Put
your family on the map today with Genes Connected and see
just how easy it is!
