This service was created to provide users of this web site with a simple and safe mechanism to share information with other web site users. It allows you to enter a list of surnames you are researching, your email address and your web site and provides a secure mechanism for others to contact you.
One of the key feature of this sevice is that your email address will never be revealed. You must enter a valid email address to register (your initial password will be sent to that address), but email sent to you by fellow researchers will be composed and created using features of this service that keep your email address private. You can choose whether (or not) to respond back to the email message.
