Is there somewhere I can post my family tree without purchasing expensive software?

 Absolutely. There are a number of "free" genealogy sites online. What I'm concerned with is, how long will they last? And if they fold, will all your hard work go by the wayside? Possibly.

Ancestry.com has been around for a long time and has a good reputation. You may wish to check into their services, but it will be a month/yearly paid service for you to access their website. You'll have to keep up your subscription in order to continue updating your family tree. Still, they do have some documentation that others do not have.


Then, there is FamilySearch.org, supplied through the Genealogy Library at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City. It's a free service and your postings will be available for free for as long as the Church remains. 
However, as in all research, do not trust all information posted by others. Do your own research and be happy with what you feel is correct.
