Yes but it is only TWO.
Title tag provides the page title. This appears on
the top of the browser bar but is not obvious.
However it is name shown in a Bookmark.

H1 appears to be a title as it is usually the top
line of the text in the page so it very
noticeable. Of course you could use h2 or whatever
even <b> to show a header. h1 is understood to be
important in SEO tagging by search engines.

But a Title tag really should be used. And for
Genealogy it is good to use the Surname of the
site as the first word in Title on the main index
page as that appears in Rootsweb listing of the site.

As I journey around the web and bookmark pages I
am surprised at how many have a Title like "Home"
