With none of the messages having mentioned the site being discussed, I
wonder if you're all talking about the same place?? When I Googled 'My
Heritage', the first screen alone showed seven different websites!
On choosing the first site [myheritage.com], they report over 29,000,000
members, nearly 310,000,000 names, and almost 5,700,000 family sites ...
and I couldn't find anywhere to record gr-grandma's favourite colour!!
They're based "in the beautiful village of Bnei Atarot, near Tel Aviv,
Have another go, guys!!
