McCartney's Journeys

About Us


About the Site

This site is hosted by GoDaddy. They offer many levels of hosting, from the personal to the professional level, domain registration and much more, all at very reasonable rates.

This site was coded with HTML 5.0 . An external cascading stylesheet (CSS 3) has been used with page specific styles where necessary. Also, because frames can cause problems in some browsers, none were used in the site.

We have added CSS commands to change the highlighting colors. Normal highlight colors are white text on blue background . The colors on this site are black text on a white background. My thanks to Dennis Gaskill, aka Boogie Jack, for the code to perfom this change.

There are many tutorials and programming aides on Dennis's website and in his newsletter, Almost A Newsletter. The newsletter is free and contains tutorials about coding techniques and other interesting articles. Please visit his site BoogieJack.Com

The site is best viewed at a resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher. Most pages can be viewed at 800 x 600, but for some the degredation is not good. This is especially true for the pages which use forms such as the "Contact Us" pages.

About the Webmaster

George McCartney is the owner and webmaster of this site, responsible for its design, coding and maintenance. while the main theme of the site is the genealogy of his branch of the McCartney family tree, it also contains articles about genealogy and historical subjects. George and his oldest son, Michael, have been researching the family genealogy for almost twenty years.

While the family originated in Ireland, George was born and lives in the United States. Through a quirk of fate, Michael, though born in the US, now lives in the United Kingdom.
