==You're absolutely right, Peter. Bet Hatfutsoth is woefully dependent on
what it receives and, to the best of my knowlege is not active in securing
genealogical information. What is available on their computers, so I found in my case, is barely worth the time and money I spent. When they start
geting an appropriate number of detailed trees >from us to enter into their
database--and I hope we will all contribute, speedily and in our days--it
will be a tremendous resource, and it will start growing exponentially.

==But BH isn't there yet. Let's hope we can all contribute to making it a
valuablle resource.
