- Rosemary Lewis

slide7

Summer 2000:

Ian moves upstairs to lead the Ingersoll CAP team.

In Fall, he is joined by Bryan.

“The very night this [Ingersoll Historical Census] was launched, we had hits from genealogists around the globe. This was groundbreaking work in the library and genealogy community, and has generated much favourable attention for OCL.”

- Rosemary Lewis

slide11

Since then, Bryan has assisted in the launch of eleven new genealogical databases and features. He took the digital photographs for the Plaques database that is part of this genealogical treasure trove.
