Currently doing a major site overhaul. This site has tons of data and has become very "bloated" and slow to load. I will be going through each page, one at a time, cleaning, organizing & making it easier to load and mobile friendly in the process. Another issue we have is photos, most are too large and need to be compressed, which takes time. Some photos are duplicates or have no genealogy or history value and therefore will be removed. Photos are nice but too many "bloat" a site and make overall site navigation complicated. I will mainly be using headstone photos and some others that are important for historical or genealogy value but mostly "text" data will be used from this point on.
Thank you for your understanding during this process.
