Where did the idea for this site come from?

I have been interested in genealogy for a long time, and had kept a record of our family tree from Linda Cole's GEDCOM file in Family Tree Maker. I was a web developer at heart, which my wife new very well, and in 1999 she bought the domain name holdener.com for me to play with. I immediately saw the potential of using MySQL and PHP to create a genealogy site that any Holdener in the world could access.

The site has seen many incarnations, as I play with the latest technologies and design techniques; much to my wife's chagrin. The essence of the site has remained the same, and always will -- hopefully it will continue to grow, and more people will use it as a reference.
