Hi all:

If someone does undertake such a task, I would suggest giving a great deal
of thought to what the project can expand into.  I host the DeHart Family
Home Page and have revamped it several times due to the great amount of info
that has been donated by so many.  If you are interested in taking a look at
the DeHart Page and how I set it up (check out the Researcher's Page for
sure) it is located at: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~am1/dehart.html
