Subject: RE: Tech: Website Dilemma
Mary,
I've used the Yahoo!SiteBuilder to create web pages. It's easy to use and does a very nice job. I think that we pay about $29 a year for a basic paid account, which includes the SiteBuilder software. I don't think it can be used online. I downloaded it to my computer. It may be downloaded to more than one computer.

You could also upload copies of the present pages to Geocities and use the editing tool that you are familiar with to make changes.

You'd have to check if you can move the domain name to Geocities. It appears to be hosted on GoDaddy.com. I don't know what all the Status: --- "PROHIBITED" notes mean

(Asked whois.pir.org:43 about richmondfolkmusic.org)

You would probably also have to get the person who registered the domain to change the registration into your name, or deal with GoDaddy on your behalf.

I'd suggest asking Geocities about transferring it as they may be more motivated to help you than your present host will.
