Olive Tree Genealogy History - Day One to Now

OliveTreeGenealogy.com Creation

After my husband died, and I was injured at school by a student, my enforced inactivity allowed me to begin creating Olive Tree Genealogy site.

In the winter of 1995 a small version of The Olive Tree Genealogy made its online debut. This what my first Olive Tree Genealogy site looked like. It's URL (address) was http://www.bconnex.net/~lschulze/ It had nice graphics but you can't see them here

In 1998 I was finally able to return to work on a part-time basis, and my enforced and unexpected "free time" allowed me to continue developing and working on The Olive Tree.

My website was among the first to bring primary sources to the Internet with its passenger lists of ships from the Netherlands to New York in the 17th Century.
