Why I'm going to try WeRelate:
It's free. I don't want to get into a subscription service like Ancestry.com
It works like wiki; a website that allows editing of its content by its users.
I hope I can find distant relatives working on their genealogy so we can exchange information. This is what could make the website useful.
The information is saved as a webpage. This should be safer than having it on my PC because I can use any PC to find it.
But I wonder if letting my family history be out on the web will jeopardize my privacy.
I'm not publishing my social security number, bank accounts, etc. I'm not a celebrity. It should be safe.
I found this on the Gizmo freeware website.
Here's a video explaining how it works:

So far I'm still learning to use this wiki website. It's more difficult than I expected. I'll let you know how it works out.
I'm also going to use a program that works offline. It's called Legacy. I'll try the free version. I'll explain more about it on another post.
