Survey for genealogists

I'm in a web development class this summer, and for my final project, I'm going to make a web page that organizes all the family history information I've been gathering and presents it in a reasonably attractive way.

As part of my assignment, I'm required to survey my target audience and find out what they would like to see in my page. Some the most likely potential users of my web page are fellow genealogists, especially genealogists whose research interests overlap with mine.

Long surveys are frustrating, so I have just three questions for you. Feel free to skip some of them, but if you have time to answer at least one question before Thursday, I (and my assignment grade) would be very grateful:

*** Can you give me an example of a private web page about a family's history that is well done? What do you like about it?

Have you ever encountered a private web pages about a family's history that was done poorly? What made you dislike it?


Pretend that you've just stumbled across my page, and you think that the people I'm researching might be your people too. What features do you hope to see on my page? ***

Thanks very much!
