Legacy of the Apple-1 Registry

Legacy of the Apple-1 Registry

The purpose of the Apple-1 Registry is, among other things, to preserve the history of all Apple-1s. Most of the information is online. However, much is confidential and the owners of the Apple-1 do not wish it to be published. At least for the moment.
The information content of the Apple-1 Registry is a treasure and must be preserved.

Besides the website, there is a self-developed software to manage all Apple-1.

The show must go on!
Mike Willegal handed-over the Apple-1 Registry in 2018 to Achim Baqué.
Should the curator Achim Baqué no longer be able to manage and maintain the website, there is a provision in his will. The registry will be handed over to a successor. It is the task of the executor to find a suitable person. This person will be handed over all access data, the administration software and the domain names.
