Your web site is a prime example of why I suggest newbies visit a number of
surname projects. Many of them take pains to explain the process to their own
members, and sometimes one way of presenting the methods will "click."

This is also a great recruiting tool. It demonstrates your commitment to the
whole MARSH community, and proves you're not just a vampire out to collect
some blood (or saliva, in this case).

BTW, I did notice one thing about the site design -- I have to scroll left
and right to view the whole page. I don't know enough about HTML to suggest a
solution, though.
