The Carey Genealogy Hub was created by Andrew Carey in 1999,
at a time when interactive genealogy websites were rare, and genealogy
information often cost money. The concept behind the website was
to provide Carey genealogists with a free, interactive source for
connecting and exchanging information.
Since establishing a presence via search engines and general
genealogy lists, the website has gradually grown in both scope
and influence. Despite being dedicated to a very specific set
of surnames, the Carey Genealogy Hub is consistently recognized on
Google and other search engines as one of the top resources for
Carey/Cary genealogy information. It also won a StudyWeb 'Academic
Excellence Award' in 2001.
The objective of the Carey Genealogy Hub remains to provide Carey
genealogy enthusiasts with a portal for exchanging reliable information
and finding other relevant Internet sources for their research. As a
'hobby' website, the Hub remains a 'labour of love' that yields no financial
benefits to its owner. The addition of adverts to cover some hosting
expenses remains a possibility, but one that will remain a last resort.
In 2006 the website was moved to its own domain - careygenealogyhub.com
for ease of recognition, and to reduce the chances of someone else using the
reputation of this website for financial gains.
In 2015 the website received a major overhaul, including a more modern
appearance and a responsive design so it renders much better on mobile
devices. The underlying code was also refactored to better follow secure
website best practices.
The website went through another redesign in 2019, to make it more mobile-friendly
and better accommodate for larger displays.
The site is still run by Andrew Carey, a professional software and web developer.
