Can't say I've ever heard of that website but if your browser says it isn't secure I'd be inclined to avoid it and use the reputable sites instead. Is it something in particular that you can't get from other websites?

If you are using Chrome, turn off "Always use secure connections" in settings.

As the site was recommended by a moderator I kinda trusted it! It's a family tree with links to my research.

Oops, looks like I'm missing something there! Will have to see if I can access it.  :)

Good luck

Like others, I had no problems accessing the site via Firefox and I've just accessed it via Chrome.
