I learned to code my webpages manually, using trial and error. Most websites were battleship gray with no bells and whistles. I was pretty excited and proud of myself when I figured out how to make mine pink-peach!
The winter of 1995 was actually the debut of the Olive Tree Genealogy website but it was only a few pages.
It's was located at http://www.bconnex.net/~lschulze/
The nice graphics I created don't display and I don't have them anymore but you get the idea.
February 1996 saw Olive Tree Genealogy move to Rootsweb.com as the full-fledged OTE site. Here's what Olive Tree Genealogy website looked like in 1997
In 1998, considering itself all grown up, Olive Tree Genealogy took its own domain name and moved to its current home.
What started as a project to take my mind off my accident and losing my husband to cancer, became a career!
Olive Tree Genealogy grew from a dozen pages to over 2500 pages, and over the years have created in total 10 websites and 10 blogs. If interested you can read the full Biography of Lorine, the creator of Olive Tree Genealogy
