This is one of the oldest sites on the Internet. It falls under the category of message boards. You are able to post queries about your ancestors in specific surname boards or geographically. The majority of the information on this site is not sourced, but offers major clues to our families history. In my own research I have found clues here that have helped me in making major breaks on my families history. It makes the brick wall a little easier to get over.

The length that the site has been around results in difficult collaboration challenges due to people changing their emails. The information though is still priceless.

I have an account on Genforum. I created it last year. I have since gotten a new computer and forgotten my login information. I keep clicking on the forgot user name button and it's supposed to send me an email with the info, but I have not gotten one. Any ideas on how to contact them so I can access my account?
