New Bavetta Family Tree website coming soon!

Saturday, June 20, 2009

I'm working on a new website that will replace the Tribalpages site. This one will allow users to choose which language they view the site in and be more customized. Tribalpages is a good concept, they just have too many technical issues and an inability to respond to customer support questions.
