Our website received 6099 visits in the first month! This number excites us because it shows us that we’re providing material that you, the genealogist, would like to read. Our goal is to support genealogists of all levels, so please share with us how we can do this. Feel free to leave a comment below, drop us a note in the IDG Forum, or Contact Us.
