With the emerging generation of genealogy enthusiasts seeking information, the Genealogy Center wanted to be viewed as a viable resource within this audience to help capture the growing community of online genealogists.
Sitefinity empowered the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center to create and independently manage an interactive web presence to better serve their patrons.
By deploying the Genealogy Center website with Sitefinity as the CMS, the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center team is able to independently maintain, update, and increase the relevance of the content on the website.
Regarding specific statistics, because the Genealogy Center website was already well known and respected within the genealogy community, the traffic hasn’t necessarily increased. There has, however, been a tremendous impact on the usability of the website.
Just over one month has passed since the launch of the GenealogyCenter.org website. We remain very pleased with the look of the site and the response that we have received from our customers. The presentation to our Library Foundation Board went well, and they were amazed and impressed with the difference from our old site. I could tell that they were very proud that foundation money could be used for such a great enhancement.
