I see no reason to set up a bank account. Certainly I trust you to collect
the money and then pay whatever needs to be paid. We can send you a check
or cash very easy - just let us know. If you collect a little too much keep
it for your own for setting up this list and all the work you do.

An accounting might be appreciated by some but not necessary as far as I am

Great response, guys! Okay, I'll try to get something set up by next
weekend--if not through an online service, then just a regular account
through my bank.

Keep an eye open for an eligible Abraham descendant. I'll post to genforum
sometime this week and let the CFAA know what we're doing in case they know
or hear from anyone.
