In regard to the message # 7, I went to the site and what you see below is what the site is all about, nothing in any of it's reference links that even so much as mentions genealogy at all. And neither does the name: "Cliff Manis" appear in any way, shape or form. I am quite interested in checking out a site like that mentioned in Message #7, does anyone have the correct URL?

GenServ is good at -- it is a shared database run by Cliff Manis that costs but $12 per year and half that for senior citizens. You need to contribute a gedcom file to join which remains your own property and cannot be downloaded by anyone. You can update your file every 6 months and if you choose, later remove it should you decide you no longer want to use the service. The GenServ database is accessed through indexes and then various forms of reports, one similar to a family group sheet that come very quickly through email. I would recommend this as a first choice for someone who does not want to invest a lot of money.
