That's true, but in my experience, family members who are only mildly interested won't go to the trouble of creating even a free account. I tried inviting all my first cousins to my Ancestry tree but none responded, despite them periodically asking me about our ancestry when I see them.

Ancestry is a good option so that at least you have access to it. I've invited family to it, some accepted,some didn't

I've never seen the tribal pages PA2UK suggested but it looks like a good option too.

See my thread below. I don't suggest my heritage due to the tree limit. Ancestry doesn't have one.

Also, if a software program you physically own is discontinued, the program continues to operate.
Good to know!

Any idea what the tree limit is?
Or are you only talking about the free version?
