Follow Friday - Australian FamilySites - The Penhall Family

The Penhall Family site is another Australian Family Site that appears to use blogging software as a platform. I feel that this site may use Wordpress.

The site uses an attractive template and is well-organised  with a series of pages that are accessible from a top menu bar. Navigation is enhanced by dropdown menus and a site search.

The information on the site consists of a series of narratives about various branches of the author's tree. There is a family photo gallery. A "Resources" page lists resources "that will help you find more information about your ancestors" providing they are from Australia or Britain.

This site, like the Hornsby Family site the was subject of another Follow Friday post, demonstrates that one does not need to place a traditional family tree on the internet to give one's family an online presence.
