ourtimelines.com recognized by Julie's Genealogy.

ourtimelines.com has been moved from ICOM, an absolutely terrible quality bulk-hosting provider, to a dedicated server on the premises of one of our major sponsors. We now have complete control of the server, and I'm sure we'll be down a lot less as a direct result. We're pleased not to be subject to ICOM's lackadaisical customer service any longer.

New Feature Activated: Printable Peers List feature has been activated.

ourtimelines.com passes the 100,000 pages served mark in its first month of operations.
