It has been two years since Susan and Michael Pearson handed over the reins of this website to my (Teresa Lewis). The site has come a long way since Susan first had the idea of the Wiltshire OPC following the idea of the original concept of Cornwall. Since October 2017 we launched our Go Fund Me/Just Giving appeal to allow us to keep the website online. This has been an amazing toll for us as it allows us to fund the hosting of the site by Richard Cresswell who is our new webmaster. Richard is also building a new website for us but as he has other commitments it will take time. When we move to the new platform we hope to be able to incorporate a lot more features such as family tree uploads for our users.
The new management team still face new challenges but we will keep the site running for as long as we can. We still intend to keep the site as a free to use facility but we will continue with our fundraising to secure its future and maintenance. We therefore ask our users if they wish to make a small donation to assist us to keep the site running for the longer good. Please note and we reiterate that this is a voluntary donation and is not a requirement to use this site. The site will remain free to anyone who wishes to use the information we provide.
The people who run the site do so as volunteers and receive no financial rewards whatsoever so please be assured that your donation will be used to maintain the site and for no other purpose. We do hope you understand our move in this direction and thank you all in advance for any support you give.
