Pejepscot Genealogical Society Website Goes Live!

If you haven’t already heard, PGS is launching a new web site with the hopes of making information more easily accessible, easing administration, and making it easier for people outside our group to find us. The first phase of the new web site is complete, which involved purchasing a new domain name, installing some software for maintaining the site, redesign work, moving the old content into the new format, and adding a few new “extras.”

One of the features of the new site is a blog like feature that is easily update able from any internet ready computer. This means we can post certain information that can’t wait for a newsletter (perhaps because of timing) or we can post supplementary information to what is included in the newsletter, allowing us to keep the page count on the newsletter down to a manageable level.

Over the summer I hope to continue working on the site to make sure others like the Maine Genealogical Society get their links to our site updated, as well as posting some more detailed information about our group, our areas of research, etc. If you have things you would like to see included on the web site, let me know and I will do my best to make it happen.
