WordPress Origin Story

I am the Lead Archivist for our family archives located at tibesar.com.

I created the first generation website that housed all of the archives using notepad in 1990.

After 18 years the archives grew to over 14,000 pages. In 2008 I knew the Archives weren’t sustainable by other family members. I needed a CMS solution that others could readily learn.

After searching for a few weeks I found WordPress. The rest is history as they say.
