I have been trying to organize DNA testing for my family. While doing so, I subscribed to this site. Perhaps it is too much of a good thing, but it has really discouraged me.
a. I was gone 1-1/2 days, and when I returned tonight there were 125 messages in my mailbox and 99% were from genealogy-DNA. If I'm gone a week, there's no way my mailbox will be able to handle all those messages.
b. I do not understand most of what everyone is talking about, so it is nearly a waste of time for me to read your messages.
I've almost come to the conclusion that it would be a waste of a lot of time trying to contact others of my family name on the internet (I've already spent probably 100 hours doing this) if it is so complicated there are constant questions and comments and people not sure they agree with each other.
