Web Sites for Genealogists

Do you have your own genealogy web site - with descendant reports, ahnentafel reports, photos, family Bible transcriptions, ancestral stories, and the like? I don't, but I want to have one. I do have some genealogy reports at a free site at - I did it because I could control the formats and didn't have to submit a database, but I could still put my data out in a searchable format. But it isn't wonderful.

There is a web site for genealogists like me who want to put up a genealogy web site - at The site has advice and links on how to develop a genealogy web site, with tutorials and resources on different web pages. Check out her own research page at I think it is very well done, and I would like to do something similar.

Step-by-step planning and execution tips are on Web page authoring and do's and don'ts are discussed at Many authoring programs don't require knowledge of HTML or other languages.

She also has genealogy research links at which are useful.

All in all, I thought this web page suite was interesting and helpful.
