A few years ago I needed a word to describe those friends I made through my involvement in genealogy. As an Aussie girl I though of our word for friend, mate and added the geni prefix to that to make Genimate.
Since I coined that word I have seen several variations on the spelling in friends’ posts eg Genemate, Geneamate, Gene-mate. However one spells it it has the same meaning.
I am blessed to have so many Genimates from around the globe.
