There’s be no shortage of traffic to my databases recently – gotta love Google. I’m not sure what people are looking for exactly, but I see lots of people browsing the data, but do not get many requests for more information like I used to. And because of that, I decided to let my Ancestry.com subscription lapse. Three-hundred dollars for one year of access is a lot – especially when I have no money coming in from doing research or other ventures.
This site gets anywhere from 40-60 people looking at stuff per day. I’ve always been happy with that since I felt that would lead people to contact me for some other information. What I think has happened is that more and more people are able to find their genealogy online – either done by somebody else or places to look themselves.
I’m not sure what that means for my site, but I will keep my database updated as I add new stuff to it, but there haven’t been many new updates lately and unless I do a bunch of data entry, I wouldn’t expect the site to change much.
If you land on this site and have questions, let me know. If you find information on this site that is useful, great, but let me know – just so I don’t feel like I’m wasting my time. For those of you who have shared data with me and/or emails, thanks a lot. It’s been great helping you get your genealogy researched.
