The new TGS website is up today and it is very impressive - attractive, professional, and full of features. Congratulations to those who worked so hard to create this great site! You can check it out at www.tgstopeka.org - (if the link still takes you to the old homepage, you may have to refresh your browser or delete your browsing history to get to the new site.) There is a private members' section but much of the content is available to the public, including a searchable listing of the extensive holdings of the TGS library. The developers promise even more features to come!
