Lots of options for building a free website for your family tree

There are several options to build your own family history website. I learned the hard way not to go the route of loading software on my computer and creating it that way. There are a bunch of sites that let you do it all online in a very easy way. You don't need to download anything onto your computer or even pay in most cases if you are willing to have ads on your site. Wikipedia has a list if you look up "Free Webhosts".

There are free sites and there are free sites. Some are much better than others and it depends on what you want your family history site to include. If what you want is to upload your GEDCOM file with little or no effort required to format the pages, then I recommend RootsWeb's World Connect Project.

If you want to have a site that will supplement your family tree with stories, documents and such, then you can request space at FreePages on RootsWeb. Yes you have to design the site, but there is plenty of free software you can use to do that. Check out some of the resources at Genealogy Web Creations http://www.genealogy-web-creations.com/

If you are using FrontPage to design your site, then join us on the FrontPage Mailing list at Rootsweb
