The underlying genealogical information is maintained using the LifeLines, a program originally developed by Tom Wetmore and now maintained by the user community. This is running under the Linux operating system. Both LifeLines & Linux are freely available software.
Extracting the information to create the individual 'People' web pages is done with home-grown software written in LifeLine's report programming language. This extracted information is then post-processed by a custom program to produce the actual HTML pages.
Information on the included maps and photos is maintain in a MySQL database.
Index, Photo Album, Map room, and such were created using custom written Linux programs.
Development HistoryThere is always an on-going stream of minor enhancements an corrections being made to both the web pages and to the genealogical information as more becomes available. But occasionally something more significant happens. This page chronicles those events, from most recent back.
