Remember when I said the Geelong and District web site and database really needed your help?
In early January, 25 years of work was wiped off the web by ‘Company F’ – the web site and database at www.zades.com.au was removed.
You were just wonderful with your responses.
So now it’s time to move from really really sad to getting close to happy.
If the number of people who responded last time offering assistance come to the party again, we’ll be making real progress. I can’t do it without financial help so I’ve set up a crowd-funding project where you can contribute.
With the input from a wonderful ‘knight in shining armour’, he has PROVEN that we can get the web site and database back up and running. So this isn’t ‘Pie in the sky’ or fantasy time – this is REAL.
BUT, it really needs some funding to make it happen – obviously the sooner the better!
From 7.30 am Wednesday 8th February, the funding project will be open … visit and pledge your support.
Help turn that really really sad face into a smiling one – please help?
I really want other local and family history researchers to again have free access to more than 1.7 million entries in my database!
It’s not just me that you will be helping – over the years many other volunteers have contributed to the database – they deserve your support as well.
Any funds raised in excess of the target will kickstart Stage 2 of the overall project.
Hi Susie, I did try to make a donation, filled in my card, etc and no matter how much I clicked, on the (I think) the final “pledge”, the screen froze and I presume did not accept the pledge.
I did my best, but I don’t know what to do to be sure I contributed. Could you please reply to me at historywilly AT gmail.com as I am closing down my old site which is dialup.
