I think the first question most people will want to ask is what the heck is this site?

This site is a question and answer site, where I hope a community of users will assist each other in their genealogy research, by answering questions asked of others.

I hope that the design and functionality of this site enables the free flow of information and encourages accurate responses, while not discouraging helpful advice.

To understand better, view the How to Use GenHelper blog post, as well as the information provided on What Are Tags.
