    searchingforanna.com

    This is just to let you all know that the website www.searchingforanna.com is no longer functional and that when the host server's term expired, the material on the site was not kept. If anyone is interested (or able) to start a new page under the same domain name, that name is paid up for another few years. Otherwise, the link to this site should be removed from your posts, since it leads nowhere...much like many of our attempts at finding Anna all these years.

    I am delighted to report that a member has volunteered to help get the web page back up, so you can all keep the link on your posts, even though it is not working yet. Do spread the word about The Thrilling Adventures of Number 18, please, (Available on Amazon.com) since this is the only recent thing with potentially wide distribution which might get Anna's attention if she's still out there.

    The wayback machine archived searchingforanna.com and can be found at the link below.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20131230...ngforanna.com/

    It was captured 34 times between 2007 and 2014 - it looks like the site was already down when it tried to capture it in 2014 but all info up until that point is available.

    If she didnt get the material before the website was pulled she can download it from the wayback machine link either by going page by page downloading the html/pictures or downloaded a free program that will automatically download all the content of a site.

    You could also just update the searchingforanna links with the wayback machine link instead of hosting a whole new page - they never delete websites and the site is fully functional when using the wayback link.

    I see that the website isn't up yet - is there something I can do to help? I have some basic web design knowledge.

    It should be fairly simple to create a new wordpress site for example, copying everything (and updating!) information from the wayback machine. Then, it would be necessary to connect the wordpress site to the existing domain name. There would be some cost involved, probably in the $100 range per year? Depending on the progress made by other volunteers (or lack of) I think Anna's Mom should contact me to discuss it. It would make sense for Anna's Mom to create her own (free) wordpress.com account with her very own login and password. That way in the future, she can control all of this if needed. Then, she can add me as an admin and I can take it from there for the creation/update.

    Annasmom, would you like to own and maintain the website yourself?
    I liked it. I was good at it. It made me feel alive.

    Why would it need to cost 100 dollars?

    Thanks for your recent posts, Vivette, but I'm afraid maintaining a website is really beyond me. By the way, regarding the "Bobby" business, I had a Dutch friend who called someone Bobby and said it meant "baby", but that may have been in a different language...such as the language of the friend, who was not Dutch.

    Alright, well I guess it doesn't need a lot of maintaining anyway, so that's not important right now.

    What is important however, is that my boyfriend and I are going to build a new website. We'll use the old website for most of the information, but I would like to hear ideas from people here aswell.

    So if you have any, please tell me, so we can make the website the best it can be.

    Thanks
