Whilst the initial appearance of the site is simple, behind the scenes there is a significant amount of technical know-how built in to facilitate all of the objectives the site had to achieve. Amongst many, these include:
- An interactive family tree that links seamlessly between biographies on the website.
- An extensive search and download capability to access the vast amount of documentation that is available within the archive.
- Access to digitised content
- An innovative solution to display some of the portraits within the archive to display explanatory content as well as the image.
