3. Geni allows you to export ‘Blood relatives’, ‘ancestors’ or ‘descendants’ and ‘forest’ which includes connected in-law trees for free, but there are limits to the number of profiles that can be exported which are:
Basic (free) users – GEDCOM exports are limited to 4x the number of profiles the user added and up to a maximum of 5,000 profiles
Pro users – GEDCOM exports are limited to 4x the number of profiles the user added and up to a maximum of 50,000 profiles”.
Note that once you have moved to MyHeritage.com you can export any data you uploaded or created even with the free MyHeritage Basic account.
