I don’t know how long we have to wait for Geni launching its Chinese version, but if you are interested in the genealogy web2.0 service the latest news is that we have a new friend called MyHeritage.com which had its Chinese site launched. Boaz Hecht, the Marketing and Business Development Manager of MyHeritage told me, they are seriously about the Chinese market.
