Records of births, deaths, memberships, and marriages within the community are maintained. These are mostly on paper.

Contact forms

Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics. The information we get from this is anonymized and looks like (and these are totally made up numbers below):

  • 78% of website visitors are in the metro DC area.
  • 55% of website visitors are women.
  • 25% of website visitors are over age 65.
  • 15% of website visitors click on the “Visitors” link in the top menu first.
  • The “Who We Are” page is the most popular page on the site.

The last type of stat is what’s really interesting to us because they let us know which pages to concentrate on keeping in tip-top shape.
