Vertical Horizon has just announced the release of Genea, a genealogy notebook app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch systems. Quoting from the announcement:

Genea is your personal genealogy notebook, specifically written for genealogist.

Genea allows you to keep your notes organised and separated from your own family tree. When you find a family connection, you can easily export the note to import the information in your family tree.

  • Create notes by taking pictures or writing down your findings
  • Organise your notes in notebooks
  • Add events like birth, marriage or immigration to your notes, and link people to the events
  • Share your notes on social media
  • Export your note with the linked events and people as a gedcom-file for use in your favourite family tree app
  • Search on notes, events or people to quickly find possible family members and events

Genea supports English, Dutch, and French.

Genea presently is available for an introductory price of $1.99 US, a 60% discount from the standard price.

Can’t seem to find their privacy policies. Clicking on any link that says “Privacy Policy” just leads to advertisement page of their products. If they do have a policy it is very buried in their site. That says to me that they aren’t that concerned for their customers privacy…. app looks good, but NO THANKS..


Here is a link to their Privacy Policy
