ELGO’s history stretches back over 20 years. It began as a large directory updated regularly by post. In 2008 it was transitioned into a web-based product of some 75,000 records.  At the present owners’ initiative a major update and expansion was begun in 2012 and was completed in November 2013, tripling the size of the database.  A key feature of the update process was and is the involvement of native speakers to ensure accuracy of the data collected and stored.

The database is now ‘live’ and is being updated and added to continually; and we can be confident of achieving better than 95% accuracy.  If  for any reason you are not yet included, please email using the contact form and you’ll be sent a username and password to give you access to over 220,000 contacts.
