Please pass this along to everyone you know ... we want everyone to try it.
We didn't expect for this to get to the lists ... but its hard to keep a lid on this once we announced it to the 2,000 enthusiastic attendees at the Jamboree. It's only for a few days, so go ahead and promote it to your friends so they can become acquainted with GenealogyBank too.

I tried this, but apparently it's not working. I got the following message:
