Erica Howton, my previous colleque curator on Geni, is not representative for judgements and knowledge about Geni. According to the wikipedia page ihas been founded by a former CEO of Paypal [], David Sacks, with only one goal, fast making big money! The religious background of the management isn't known, but there is a very big jewish contribution to the tree.

The management is not very clear to users and curators and always pretends: you doesn't know all facts about Geni and we are not going to discuss that with you!
Thanks, Fred. At the time, I couldn't find anything about religious or secular associations with which is why I used the quote from Erica.
Family search has the most records, albeit not always easy to find.  They are working on Italian project to digitalize Italian records and I found records from Settefrati Frosinone Italy on there....and you can go to one of their locations to look up records that are not available anywhere else. With a camera icon records are digitally available wnd film reel you have to order for $7.00 to the location and sign up for a time to view those records and make copies.  If digital you can download records to a memory stick.
