Italian Genealogy Research is an enjoyable, uplifting hobby. It is good exercise for the mind and fun too.
I maintain Italian Genealogy Online so I can use my own links without having to deal with bookmarks in different browsers or devices and in the hope that what has helped me will help others learn to do their own research.
I have been using the "free" webhost Angelfire / Lycos since the year 2000 to host Italian Genealogy Online and all things Italian (my site used to include Mediterannean Diet info, Italian Art, Roman history, Travel to Italy links, and more) therefore the longer title.
I am not into doing genealogy for money so there is no reason for me to purchase a domain and pay a yearly fee to host this site in order to help others easily learn to do their own Italian Genealogy Research.
I charge no fees and have never solicited for donations or funding, which gives me freedom to be politically-incorrect and say THANK GOD that Geocities.WS gives free website hosting without invasive Advertising that covers the webpage. - - (so far) :-)
