    Hello All!

    For the last 10 years I've been involved in building and
    maintaining a site to chronicle and archive news clippings of
    births, obits, marriages, and postcards, etc.. primarily of the
    Welland Ontario region. It has since expanded into three
    "sections" (Main, Tales, Events) each requiring their own CMS
    installations.

    If you are interested in exploring photos of barns and churches
    all over southern Ontario and other pieces of history ..then
    check out:

    The S)earch feature works fairly well. Look up names, places,
    dates. Even content of Comments is included.

    I'll admit, that a fresher CMS design would be ideal (this *was*
    innovative for its time 10 years ago afterall!), but the
    original intent is primary an archive.

    It is a project where the founders prefer to be known as "S & B"

    Every newsclipping was cropped, resized, reshaped. That's over
    10,000 now. Every post was planted and re-edited when required
    - those exceed 11,000.

    It runs on an older Wordpress version. I'd love to have a better
    photo gallery. But it will have to do for a little while longer.
    Porting to a newer WP would be *another* project!

    And that's a little glipse of my world.
