Five Short Steps to More Successful Genealogy
using the GENDEX index

Here they are ...

  1. Make good use of the many resources on the net, i.e. search engines

  2. Enter your data collection into a database program which can
    1. create a family tree, and
    2. generate a GEDCOM file
    If you don't have one, get a copy of GENIUS

  3. Up load your GEDCOM file to places on the web for all to see, such as
    1. The Ancestry World Tree
      and to share with your friends and family privatly, such as
    2. MyFamily.Com

  4. Take your GEDCOM file and turn it into HTML code ready for publishing on a web page. One good program which will do that for you is GedPage

    If you have an existing genealogy web page, just make a new subdirectory and upload all the files into it. If you don't have one, the following sites will provide you with free web space and offer you even other incentives to locate your web site on their server:

    1. MyFreeOffice
    2. TerraShare
    3. BizLand
    4. Spree

  5. When all the files you created with GedPage are uploaded to your web site, you are ready to register your web page with GENDEX, a special genealogy web page indexing service for web pages created with a GENDEX compatable HTML code generator like GedPage.
