Website Update

I think the major construction on the website is complete. I doubt I ever will be done tweaking it, but it appears to be pretty stable right now. The main driver in the website is WordPress. The photo gallery capability is provided by Menalto Gallery. The genealogy application is provided by PHPGedView. The theme/appearance of […]
