Would you like to create web pages for your ancestry or perhaps as a project for your local genealogy society? Every society needs a web site to both "get the word out" and also to sell the publications produced by the society. For several years Microsoft FrontPage and MacroMedia's DreamWeaver have been the two most popular tools for creating Web pages. These two powerhouse programs allow almost anyone, novices as well as professional Web designers, to build nice-looking Web pages in a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) environment. If you can use a word processor, you probably can create Web pages with either FrontPage or DreamWeaver. Yet both products have powerful tools that will also appeal to the advanced user.
These two software packages are expensive: Microsoft FrontPage has a "street price" of $175 to $200, and DreamWeaver typically sells for about $400. A newer program is now available to create Web pages. It is very powerful and yet is free of charge. I have been using the free program to create pages on this newsletter's Web site.
