"What responsibilities are involved as a page host?"
1. Provide data such as census transcripts, cemetery readings, marriages, deaths, births, biographies, resources ie., a list of names, addresses and phone numbers for the county court clerk, library, and genealogical and/or historical societies, county and village histories etc.
2. Provide a means for queries to be submitted to your area research.
3. Provide links to other pages that pertain to your area of research, by request or permission. Homepage links should pertain to your page area of genealogical and/or historical information. If someone donates their records for use on your pages, you are responsible to place that information online, giving copyright to the person who submitted the material.
4. Provide a link to the appropriate host site and the appropriate national page on your home page along with the appropriate main site Logo of your choice. You are free to do your page in any manner you like, as long as the above is followed.

"Help, I want to host a county but I know nothing of creating a web site.."
Many HTML editing programs are available for download or you can also create it the old fashioned way.......Visit Cyndi's List Home Page Construction Kit for a complete guide.
Or visit HTML Goodies - a great site for all the basics!!

Where do I place my pages? Does it cost me anything?"
There are many web sites that offer you the ability to create & maintain free web pages (see Cyndi's pages above). You are free to place your pages anywhere you want them. We are also willing to assist in finding free web space for your pages, if you need help.

"Who owns this data?"
If you provide it, you own it. If you request it to be removed, it will be. We hope, however, that you would never feel a need to remove material. Our only goal here is to provide the information needed to do research from home.
