History of site

This Web site was originally launched on 5 May 2001.

The initial purpose for this Web site was to help the Manuel Jose Committee promote the 2001 – 2002 family reunion. It was envisaged that the site will grow and expand as a news and information tool for family members.

In 2009 the site was redesigned using the Silverstripe content management system using the Maori theme. A theme based on New Zealand and the Maori people. This theme was created by João Paulo as part of Google’s Highly Open Participation Contest and is compatible with the blog, e-commerce and forum modules.
