I thought to add a bit more detail to this long GoAncestry journey. The webiste has some more features that were added this last year.
I enjoy the flag counter as I get a glimpse into the location our visitors are coming from. I am not sure it really tells me anything more than that, but that is enough for such an easy to use application.
Spent some time getting the site into a more secure state. It wasn't insecure to begin with, but the method used to
Things have been progressing nicely for the site and for our personal efforts in Genealogy and History. We believe we are on the right track and that over time we will have a wealth of information posted here that will help others. While it will be time that is the judge of that opinion, I am comfortable in continuing our efforts on our current path.
We do have the basic constructs built for the US States and their respective counties. Efforts to create this infrastructure has pro
Things have come along well in the past weeks. Over the last days part of our team has been working to add more research related content to pages from Maryland, Delaware, Ohio, and even a few other entries here and there.

I generally focus on getting ledgers from local community stores or businesses and my primary goal is to obtain them from as far back as my ancestors were in that area.
I am looking for the following:
New Jersey - 1700 - 1900
Pennsylvania - 1720 - 1880
New York - 1680 - 1850
Connecticut - 1630 - 1800
Massachusetts - 1630 - 1800
Rhode Island - 1630 - 1800
I had an interesting time meeting with the chapter yesterday. Brought back the reason I was interested in joining from the beginning. I hope I can find a way to participate without becoming involved in politics or stress. Joining non-profit volunteer organizations should be fun.
