About GoGaspe.com

GoGaspe.com currently has over 8000 photos of the Gaspé area including scenery, wildlife, historical photos, and headstones from most local cemeteries. Our site offers the most complete Gaspé business directory on the net as well as an abundance of tourist information. In addition we have 8 interactive bulletin boards including Classified Advertising and a Community Announcements page where you can reach out to Gaspesians. All this along with an extensive collection of music by local musicians, an extensive history and genealogy section, as well as links to hundreds of local web sites. We have far surpassed our original dream of 100 visitors per day, currently receiving well over 1000. GoGaspe.com has become Gaspe's leading web site, offering the most complete coverage of Gaspe available on the web.

Beginning in 1996 as "www.gaspelink.com," it was the combination of three Gaspesian sites, "Gaspesians Keeping in Touch," by Annetta Grant, "Ron's Gaspe Page," by Ron Patterson and "Sunny Bank, Our Ancestral Home," by Andy Patterson. Our objective was to provide visitors with links to all the information available on the Web concerning our homeland. It has grown to become Gaspe's foremost English web site, with over 40 megabytes of pictures and information about Gaspe.

Late in the year 2001, after Annetta moved on to university, Ron and Andy assumed the responsibility of maintaining GaspeLink. In the fall of 2002 we began translating the site to French to increase our client base, and we changed the name to GoGaspe.com. Innovative, and very popular sections like the Featured Photo, Message Boards, News Briefs, Weather information, and a Genealogy section added considerably to the popularity of the site. Then, with the assistance of Daniel Arsenault in 2005, we were able to add several dynamic sections, allowing our viewers to add their own content. The most popular is the Classified Ads, where almost everything listed is sold within days. To continue flowing with the tide, we added the GoGaspe Facebook page in 2014, which is well maintained by Bruce Patterson with pictures being uploaded almost daily.

We'd like to extend a special thanks to all our sponsors, and those who have kindly donated to our cause over the past 20 years.
