Help name my genealogy website?

I'm putting together a genealogy website. Half of it is about my personal family history so my own relatives can look at it. The other half is about genealogy research itself, things of interest to other genealogists in general. I'd like a cool, fairly unique name for this website. Maybe a phrase? Any clever suggestions? Thanks!

cats and glass dot com

I'm looking for a domain name that I can use for pictures of glass pieces I made and my cats. Possibly I will eventually sell glass stuff (not cats), but that is not an immediate plan. I am totally out of ideas that do not include my name.

How much did domains cost in 1996?

Specifically, I'm curious about registering and ongoing hosting costs in 1996 for domain names. Were they more expensive? Were they the same price? was it a monthly charge? A yearly charge?

Choosing a domain name - descriptive.info or evocative.com?

I give regular classes/workshops in my specialty. When I set up my project and the related website last year, I wanted a very straight forward domain name but it wasn't available as a .com so I got .info instead. My SEO is good if you google for it but real people tend to assume that everything is .com so they have trouble remembering/typing in the url. I've picked out a more evocative name that is nicer as a business name but I'm worried that it will be harder for people to find me on the internet. What is the smart thing to do? If I do switch (or try to use both) what is the best way to do that? [more inside]

Are there any gotchas/pitfalls when selling a domain name through Sedo?

I have never sold a domain name before but it appears I'm about to do so now. Yay! An offer was made to me by a buyer through Sedo and after some email negotiations we have arrived at an acceptable price and presumably the process of transfer and payment is about to begin. Having never done this before I am wondering if there are any pitfalls and gotchas I should be watching out for. Specific details inside. [more inside]

How do I buy this parked domain?

I'd like to buy the domain name "myfirstnamemylastname.com" (but with my actual first and last names). Unfortunately it's parked with GoDaddy, full of ads, and shows up as already taken when I do a domain name search. Do I have to buy it from GoDaddy or the owner or what? Or should I not bother, and go for the .net instead? This is the first time I've wanted a domain name that wasn't actually being used for a real website before.
