Mari, that is true. And I may be in danger of getting (slightly?) off topic
here, but if the search engines pointed to the GenConnect main page, or
main pages for any given surname, that would lead those people in a natural
way to the lists. Wouldn't it? I know there isn't much way of putting the
lists themselves on a search engine... the Rootsweb main page, maybe. ??
But your right, there is no way that I can see to get anything _directly_
about the lists on the search engines. I just think that if more people saw
ROOTSWEB when they did any kind of search, more folks would find their way
to our lists.
