Our Move is Complete!

CanadianHeadstones.com has completed the move to the new server. We, now, have our own dedicated Managed Virtual Private Server. Although, this increased our monthly costs almost ten-fold, the improved service, speed and reliability will be well worth it.

As with all other moves of this magnitude, it did not come without hiccups!  The first few days we thought everything was "tickety-pooh"............ oh were we ever fooled into complacency!! Suddenly, we found that the "Thank You for Your Submission" were not going out. This led to almost two weeks of detective work by yours truly and our programmer, Bob. As well, we had to take the Family Trees offline for a few days.Anyway, all those problems have been solved.

We are now able to report a much faster, secure and stable system for everyone.

Thank you to Everyone for your patience and support as we continue to grow and improve.

Regards
Jim McKane
President

GenDexNetwork Surpasses 31 Million Records!

GenDexNetwork.org has now surpassed 31 Million records. It is a genealogical index (GenDex) which indexes persons in family trees on the internet. The first GenDex was operated by Gene W. Stark in 1994 when computer indexing for genealogical information was in its infancy. Many genealogy database programs can produce the gendex.txt file for submission to the index.

It connects the family trees to make one huge database. Clicking on a name in the search results immediately takes you to the same person on a family tree web page with their genealogical data.

GenDexNetwork.org can be searched by names, dates and places of birth and death, includes all family trees in one search and requires no joining or membership to search the database.

GenDexNetwork is FREE and will remain FREE!

It is a service of CanadianHeadstones.com!
