About a month or so ago I was informed by Dropbox that they will no longer be ameniable to hosting my website (or anybody’s for that matter), which is a shame because it was so easy to do.
So, I had to find a new way to get my family tree online.
For the past few years I had been mulling over using “The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding” it is PHP and mySQL based way to get your website up and running – all changes and modifications can be done in a browser. For me it is familiar because our website at work operates in a like manner. So when Dropbox informed me of the change, I decided what better time then now to wade in to the deep end of the pool. (And I really love to swim.)
First I had to find a web hosting site, then I had to decide on a domain name. Then…yadda, yadda, yadda…
Here it is, the link to my new genealogy site: jensancestors.net. It is still in process but the bones are there and it should be easy to make changes as needed.
The blog is not changing, I am still quite happy with my wordpress account, although I might upgrade to my own wordpress domain too.
Have a great weekend. Oktoberfest! Time for lots of good German beer and brats.
