Michael,

OK, you have a User Home Page on Genealogy.Com.

The URL, the one that I would suggest you post on a Surname GenForum is

http://www.genealogy.com/genealogy/users/h/a/n/Michael-Hansen-6/

so that folks can click on it and be taken to your User Home Page.

Yes, as I explained before, there are

Genealogy.com
FamilyTreeMaker.com
Ancestry.com

User Home Pages.

All the above, and others, are under The Generations Network. I guess you can call them related if you wish. But they are very different.

There were 144 matches in Family Home Pages.

Because you are using an InterneTree (GEDCOM file), the Search engine isn't finding your User Home Page. I search for Michael Hansen. If you look at most of the 144 'hits' you will see that they are Family Tree Maker User Home Pages with Genealogy Reports on them that are found.

I found your User Home Page by clicking on Community, at the top of this page, which shows there:

Page Author Browse

To locate a page created by someone with an uncommon name, click a letter. Warning: Browsing for common names (Smith, Thompson) can be slow.

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Then worked my way from H, to HA, to HAN, then scrolling down to you. If you do that, you sill see that there have been a number of Michael Hansens before you. I am guessing that when you (all) created your accounts other information was not provided, so the software assigned you to #6.

It's not clear to me, that searching for your name will find you, using the Community search. You have to scroll down to your name.

It trick, is to have data on your User Home Page that can be searched on. Like the 144 "hits" I received when I searched for Michael Hansen.

Not sure what you are trying to do, when you say "Also, I'm not able to access my genealogy.com family home page using the URL or my name in Google."
