Earlier this year, my business partner sent me a Word document full of "kids eat free" offers for the Austin area. He'd been keeping it on his computer, updating it every now and again, and then emailing it to friends and family when he made changes. I took one look at that and had an idea.

I took his word document and was off to the races. I turned it into a web site with searchable listings, including participating locations, and Google maps. Over the last couple of months, I've been using this new site as a way to experiment with new marketing techniques, advertising revenues, and web technologies. I created a simplified, alternate mobile version of the site, created an iPhone icon, set up a twitter account, and on and on.

It's definitely been a learning experience. I'll probably post a follow-up to this on my company blog.

I'm pretty much done with the Krabbenhoft genealogy for now. There's still a lot to be done, but I need to focus on some other projects for the time being. So, if anyone has any additional information that they'd like to add, please drop me a line and I'll add it as I have time.

It's amazing what you can find on the Internet these days. With the help of Google, Ancestry.com, and FamilySearch.org. I was able to trace my family tree back as far as the late 17th century in Schleiswig-Holstein, Preussen (Germany). Google led me to a survey of gravestones in Jackson County, Iowa. With the information I already had from my grandparents, I was able to find the father of my great-great-grandfather, Claus H. Krabbenhoft. I was able to verify a lot of information from the 1880 census information available on Ancestry.com. FamilySearch.org had all the rest of the information.

Most of the genealogical information I had was actually for my paternal grandmother's side - the Bergs. I have made some pretty good progress on that side. However, my information on Krabbenhofts further back than my great grandfather Harry Krabbenhoft is scarce. Hopefully, I can get in touch with my great aunt and get more info. If you're related to any Krabbenhofts in the Quad Cities area, I'd like to hear from you.
