First of all I want to thank all of you brave and patient souls who have
gone on the new website. I know that changes are generally hard to
swallow and that there are glitches in the site still that make it
somewhat cumbersome to use. but perhaps some of you will be enticed by
some of the new features we will have.

- Much much much more storage space for your files. So if you
were relegated to Ranchos2, or even if you were not but wanted to look
up someone's files who was relegated in Ranchos2. you will have to do so
no longer. All of the files should fit in the site and the description
of the file folders is searchable so you can simply type a surname or a
location and find the file folder with the relevant information

- The user database is searchable. We have already imported
the who's who database from YahooGroups and once we get the remainder of
members to fill in their profiles, you can simply search for a surname
in the user database and find who is researching that surname. Same
goes for locations.

- GEDCOM files. You will be able to upload GEDCOM files.
These will be viewable only by members, just like any other file but
viewers can navigate interactively through the trees. Furthermore, the
GEDCOM files are not downloadable by anyone other than the owner of the
file. A very useful feature is that members can use the online GEDCOM
database to cooperate with other members on building up a family line.

Please go on and try out the site. Let me or Joseph know If you have
any questions or suggestions.
