GenForum Link
I got to my Family Home Page by clicking on the two URL links in your posts of 4/22 and 4/23 as follows:

I get this part, and it works fine as far as establishing a link in a GenForum post to a Family Home Page.

Browser's Address Link
I hope I did this correctly. I've never used it before and wasn't aware of this function. As you described the Browser Address Link, it's at the top of the screen next to the refresh button. I thought you were suppose to put URLs in the search box.

I put the two above URLs into the Browser's Address Link, and received the same response as follows:
404 Page Not Available
Presumably that avenue is blocked??
Were you able to make it work on your end??
Did I possibly do something wrong??

Google Search
I tried a google search for your home page by entering "h r worthington" and found it very easily. I hope you don't mind, you've done a lot of work and it was very impressive. Presumably the searchability of your page is as a result of being generated by FTM.

You page reminded me that I had freind here who died recently, Robert Worthington, his family is said to be Hapa Haole, i.e., half-Hawaiian and half-European, and they've been here for some time -- it may have been before the turn of the 19th Century.

Thankyou for all the assistance.
