Hello all -
I have just completed a long overdue, major upgrade on the following web page:
Cyndi's Genealogy Home Page Construction Kit

Some of the improvements and changes are:
~~Better organization for the outline.
~~Added a Table of Contents section.
~~Separated out the links for genealogy graphics from other graphics.
~~Added multiple new links, updated numerous broken links.
~~Created a new section with links to other similar resources online
for genealogy web page creation.
~~Created a new section titled:
"Common Web Site Problems That I See Every Day"

For your convenience, I have included a copy of the Introduction and the
Table of Contents below. Please stop by and take a look when you have time.

Good luck,
