Hi -

Since the Genealogy Gateway site's complete make-over earlier this year,
response has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks for all the kudos.

By far, "increased speed of access" to all our pages and our links is the
biggest bonus yet. A close second, is the "impressive professional design
and ease of finding things", third, "had no idea there was so much on this
site" and forth, "you need to tell more people about this site so that
everyone knows about it's great resources".

In response, here is a quick overview (for you) of what is available:

* Genealogy Gateways - the core listing areas for everything you need to
find family sources and resources, including surnames.
* Site Search - there are 3 ways to search now: surnames, listings and total
site.
* Listing Updates - yes, you can update old listings quick & easy, yours or
your favorite resource (monitored).
* Obit searches - still the most popular obit center on the web.
* Vital Records - get more here from multiple sources.
* Query Forum - tons of content and fully searchable.
* Guides - the centers for all your message interactivity: surnames, family
historian, genealogy and professional services. Add a free message anytime.
Follow-up threading providing.
* Surname Searches - your favorite worldwide search center is still there,
only re-designed!
* Surname Listings - way too many to count, but well over 150,000 (we
think).

We recently added a new domain and a new search center at:
http://www.genealogysearch.com/portals.htm Try it, we think you'll like
it! Still others are coming, soon.

As always, the site is free to all.

Respectfully,

Steve Lacy.
