Probably the best "GEDCOM" submittal site of all. This one has a little thing called "Smart Matching" which will compare your submittal to others and provide you with a list of matching individuals in a "side by side" comparison. The site also has message boards, the ability to "block" the living folks data as you upload, automatic listing of your submitted names with "GENDEX" and a lot more. Your gedcom is NOT for resale here, and is laid out nicely in website form.

World Connect Project
Another Rootsweb production...similar to GenCircles except without the "Smart Matching"...tons of submittals and no fret of them selling your data.

My Trees
Although some data on this site is "pay for view", it does offer various ways of gaining free access to that data so you can quickly check for your family.
