Welcome, to the newly revised Putnam County Genweb Site.
Over a year ago, I suggested to Karen, (WebMaster) of this site that a computer/software upgrade was necessary. So a journey began into improved technology. And for my thoughts, I was chained down to learn the in and outs of new software. Since it was my idea, I began work to layout the workings of this newly redesigned site. I selected Incomedia's Website X5 to run under Windows 10, bringing us into the modern age. This new software is capable of helping a novice almost look good. I have only started over many times, to obtain a better working site. The operation will be similiar to a file cabinet, moving in and out of the various sections or projects (a set of mini-sites linked together). To implement this, I have what we call the "Get Around Links". If you discover we need more links to facilitate, please let us know.
I have tried hard to give the Genealogists of Putnam County something to be proud of. If you discover a problem, let Karen know. I practiced on the Fountain County INGenWeb Site and already have a list of changes or improvements for it. Everyday I am learning something new about this procedure. Please be patient, Thanks, Jim!
NOTE:I and many others have spent 20 plus years (from its inception) on this project --PLEASE GIVE CREDITif you use our work! I've found hundreds of obituaries FROM THIS SITE on findagrave and many personal genealogy sites - I know the obituaries etc. came from here but I don't see any credit.PLEASE GIVE CREDIT!!!!Here is the citation you should use & thanks so much in advance :)
