The objective of this discussion board is to encourage discussion among people interested in researching their family history.

1. You must not be mean to each other. Insults are OK, but only if they are creative but civil insults.
2. No potty mouth.
3. Any other subject is OK. There are no off-topic subjects except uncivil language. I determine what is civil and what is not, but I will try to be reasonable.

Here are some links that will help you get started. Some of them are commercial sites and I am making no recommendations.
