brightsolid, the online publishing arm of DC Thomson, owns or manages many web sites, including several genealogy sites, such as findmypast sites in England, Ireland and Australia, Friends Reunited, and the British Newspaper Archive (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk) amongst others. Now the company appears to be shifting operations of some of its non-genealogy sites to CUPID, the online dating business.
I noticed the sites that brightsolid is giving to CUPID all are non-genealogy sites. Does this mean that brightsolid is moving to focus its efforts on its obviously successful genealogy web sites?
Earlier this month Brightsolid unveiled plans to push into the American family history market with the launch of Census records.com. The site, which will go live later this year, will provide access to all of the USA’s census records. You can read about that in my earlier article at http://goo.gl/QYPlr.
