Found MyHeritage.com--a free site. Created a test web site and small family tree there for free & searched on my dad's name in their new data base. He appears as name #6 in the 1940 Census (released April 2012 by US Census Dept.) at Chicago w/address correct for Northwestern Medical School student. Also tried their Celebrity Collage maker--you upload a pix & they do facial recognition & create it. It's fun. I'm only using their Free stuff at this time. They did add a new SEARCH feature.
