In the late Middle Ages, French families adopted surnames by the thousands. Genese appeared first in the former province of Anjou. It was a name for a poultry farmer. It is a southern French diminutive form of the surname Gelinier, which is derived from the Old French word "geline," which means "poultry" or "hens."
