I've reached a crossroads in my continuing resarch of Bourbon County, Kentucky. As
many of you know, I own a Bourbon County, Kentucky, web site, and a Ruddlesfort web site,
the latter devoted to two of the early forts of Bourbon County. These sites have tons of
data on Bourbon County and its neighbor counties, as well as the early history of the
Due to my job change which cut my salary by 50%, I cannot afford to continue these sites
at their current location. I currently pay $800 per year for rental of internet space.
Some may question why I should pay so much since one can get a fre web site these days.
My reason is that by renting space I have sole control of the site; thus, I do not have to
suffer those pesky banners and advertisements. At any rate, I can no longer afford the
luxury of spending this much money for a web site.
I do have a second web site through Rootsweb to which that I can shift some of the web
pages. Unfortunately, there is limited web space available for this. Consequently, much
of the great data (such as downloadable Word files) and graphics will go by the wayside.
I wish I could continue to maintain the site as is, but I simply can't afford it.
P.S.--My main web site is http://www.shawhan.com
and contains the Bourbon County and
Ruddlesfort sites. It is this web site that will probably no longer exist.
