Work on began in late 2004, with the intention of becoming an online, living encyclopedia about all things Armenian. This site will replace -and expand - a great deal upon the material of, its predecessor. The dynamic format of this site will allow not just the webmaster, but any visitor to add and edit pages, giving the site a much greater potential to grow.

Because this is a continuation of - I would like some of the people who were especially supportive of that effort, and some of whom continue to help with this one. Special thanks to Richard Sevadjian for all of his time and encouragement. Vick Khachadourian and Hagop Bedrossian have also been extremely supportive, making a lot of new content possible. Thanks to the Svazlian family. Many others have helped with various pages and information. With this new site, I hope thousands of people will be able to contribute whatever knowledge/time they are able in order to make this a true online encyclopedia about Armenia and Armenians everywhere.
