Some time ago I stopped by and tried to use this website, however after a couple of clicks I gave up when I couldn't find what I was looking for.? Several days ago I came back and persisted in seeking the form to post my pedigree.? Just this morning I got a message indicating that my pedigree was posted at one of the URL's listed below, however it is NOT at those URLs.? Here are the options I was given:
The Stevenson Project 6 Page Website ...http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/s/stevenson/ .? After clicking on that link, I chose STEVENSON FAMILY FORUM at...http://www.wfnforum.net/index.php?board=1028.0 and STILL no info on my family.?
I then tried an alternate URL, the Pedigree Forum at... http://www.wfnforum.net/index.php?topic=3065.0? then I gave up and decided that, giving the potential of this website to make a difference with DNA genealogical research it was worth my time to let you know how opaque your website is.? (Unfortunately since you know how to navigate through the website, you may not be aware of the trouble we newbies have - (or should I say "this newbie has,")? in getting around.

Here is the entire email as I received it:

"Thanks for posting your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum at www.worldfamilies.net .

Your pedigree is now posted on the Patriarch page of the Project 6 Page Website:

Hi Jim.  Thanks for taking the time to describe your difficulties.  We know that this Forum is quite different than the Forums that folks who mainly do genealogy use and that it gives some folks trouble.  We are working on a new Forum.

1. Your pedigree that you posted on the Stevenson Forum is on page 2.  You probably only looked on page 1

Pages: [1] 2      is on page 1 of the Stevenson Pedigree Forum
Pages: 1 [2]      is on page 2 of the Stevenson Pedigree Forum

http://www.wfnforum.net/index.php?topic=3065.0

2. When you go to the 6 page site, there are 6 navigation boxes across the top of the page: Home, Patriarchs, Results, Discussion, Recruitment & Misc.  You can click on those boxes and go to one of the other pages

http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/s/stevenson/                is the Home Page
http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/s/stevenson/pats.html   is the Patriarch Page

Your pedigree is about 10-12" from the top of the Patriarch page, so you'll have to scroll down a little

Hope this helps.  Terry
