GoGaspe.com has over 3000 photos of the Gaspé area including scenery, wildlife, and historical photos. 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 and Announcements page where you can reach out to Gaspesians. All this along with an extensive collection of music by local musicians and links to hundreds of local web sites. Currently GoGaspe.com receives over 1000 visitors per day.
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 grew to become Gaspe's foremost English web site, with over 20 megabytes of pictures and information about 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.
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. We have far surpassed our original dream of 100 visitors per day. GoGaspe.com has become Gaspe's leading web site, with the most complete coverage of Gaspe available on the web.
