Running a web site is not as easy as people think -- it takes time, energy and money. Webmasters spend countless hours building their sites, and spend hundreds of dollars to keep them up and running.
At Genealogy Today we understand how difficult this can be, and sometimes impossible to continue. Rather than see quality sites disappear forever, we have established a small fund designated to preserve these efforts.
On an ongoing basis, Genealogy Today, acquires, transitions and integrates web sites onto our own servers.
(If you are a webmaster and need some assistance, please feel free to contact us)
Below are some of the sites we have successfully preserved.
