Genealogy & Church Websites
I've been doing genealogy part-time for about 20 years now, but only in the last few years have I gotten interested in building websites. My first genealogy website was through my internet service, and I built it with their provided template. I hated it. It didn't look the way I wanted it to look. So I began to learn how to build a website, and I uploaded it here on Rootsweb.
If you are interested in having a custom built website, but don't have the time or patience to learn HTML, then perhaps I can help you. Cost would depend on what you have in mind. Contact me if you are interested. I not only do genealogy websites, but others as well. I maintain two church websites, St. Paul's Free Lutheran Church and Wayne Heights Brethren Church.
I couldn't do genealogy with out some of my favorite websites. Almost everyone who does genealogy has heard about Cindi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet. There is just so much there, under any category that you can think of. A wonderful place just to browse. For the beginner, it can be pretty overwhelming. But go slow and just look around the site. You'll find some wonderful places.
Rootsweb is one of my favorite sites. Just click on the banner above this page and it will take you their home page. If you're looking for the ancestor that came over to the U.S. then the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild is a place you need to visit. Are you trying to find out where a member of your family is buried? These websites, Find A Grave, Interment.net and the WPA Cemetery Database, may help you.
I have a cousin that I've never met in person. He saw my website and got in touch, because he also does research on the Renn family. He also has his own web site: My Family Photos
I do a lot of searching in the state of Pennsylvania and Maryland, so these sites are Bookmarked in my browsers:
Footnote - has the Pennsylvania Archives (and more) searchable, for free.
PA-Roots - has listings of a lot of PA Resources
PA-Roots Databoards - has data, (obits, birth and marriage info) contributed by users.
PA GenWeb - they have an archive search and more. If you're not sure what county your search should be in, this would be a good place to start.
