Discover My Past

Project synopsis

Discover my Past, another brightsolid publication, is an online genealogy magazine.

Rich in content, there were 2 magazines that were available for subscription to view online: Discover my Past England & Discover my Past Scotland.

Richard Callison of brightsolid asked us to produce the website that would wrap around the magazine viewer, and present the magazines to the public.

The magazines are no-longer in production, but fantastic back issues are still available.

We worked closely with brightsolid during the life of the magazine, and who knows, it may be resurrected in the future.


We have been customers of TayFusion for over ten years and have always found their team to provide the highest standards of service whilst being easy to deal with.

They understand our business, priorities and objectives very well. We see them as an extension to our own IT team, adding skills such as web and database system design in a most cost effective manner.

Managing a very small IT team I have to rely heavily on partners in key areas to provide expert support particularly in the areas of website and Intranet design.

Over the last 10 years I have worked with Mark and the team at TayFusion I have found them consistently helpful, knowledgeable and always willing to help answer and develop some of my wilder requests.

I particularly value their friendliness and professionalism and I always feel comfortable in picking up the phone and bouncing a few ideas around with them as I would if they were a colleague.

Their support allows me to focus on supporting my colleagues and concentrate on well... the boring stuff frankly...
