Hi Tom,
The best one I have found is Rootweb.com.
Unlimited web space, open to the web, all the search engines find it, so deceased only.

You have to write a begging e-mail to say why you should have one.

A small low key banner ad for Ancestry.com, who own Rootweb, at top and bottom of the pages.

I have 1600 people on mine.

Others I have seen, some only allow 1 page or have a small Mb limit.

All the best,
