I tried to sign up for the Yahoo Groups Brisk website and got bumped off
several times. There were lots of unsolicited advertisements and pop-ups
galore. I tried to access the links to family trees, but was denied access.
When I tried the surname link, nothing came up. I also tried the Brisker
organizations link and got nothing. Wouldn't it be better to put this Brisk
group directly on the JewishGen home page and make everything run smoother!
