Free webpage space seems to be
everywhere you look, nowadays.
What's so special about
Freepages at RootsWeb?
The first distinctive thing you'll notice
about Freepages is that there are no
space limitations. That's right,
none. You don't have to carefully
measure your data to make sure it will
fit, or leave out that special picture of
great-great grandma. Or even worse,
find yourself choosing whether to do
the best possible presentation you can
on your genealogy, or skimp to make
space for pictures of the family vacation
and the dog having her puppies.
There's room for
all of that and more
The second distinctive thing you'll
notice is the structure at Freepages.
Your account comes with 45 special
categories for pages, from genealogy
to arts to writing, as well as
miscellaneous in case you have an
area of interest we've managed to miss.
This not only helps you keep your
pages neatly sorted out, but helps your
visitors as well---they'll find your great-
grandma in our genealogy directory,
and Fluffy's kittens in our pets
Freepages also works remarkably well
as part of a suite to present your
genealogy information. Upload your
GEDCOM to WorldConnect, then
link to that from your Freepages site,
where you put all the comments and
stories and pictures that turn
that GEDCOM from a dry list of names
and dates to the story of real people.
Freepages also comes with its own
mailing list for assistance in creating
your pages, Freepages-help-L@rootsweb.com,
as well as the option of using an online
editor, if you don't want to create
your pages using HTML software.
