Her Site Will Survive Her

Shari Milks of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, has spent years creating an excellent website on Manitowoc, Wisconsin, Genealogy. To keep the site from expiring when she does, she's made arrangements with the Lester Public Library in Two Rivers.

"(Milks has) spent literally thousands of hours entering genealogical data into the site, and she doesn't want it to disappear once she's gone," said Chris Hamburg, acting library director.

Milks asked the library to inherit the Web site because the library has worked closely with her in the past to make the material available, Hamburg said.
The library will inherit Milks' computer, her database and her Web domain. It will be responsible for paying the annual and monthly fees to the company that hosts her Web site. The library also could add to her Web site, Hamburg said. [Link]
