Family Tree Database Update

I am working hard to get an updated version of the family trees onto the website as soon as I possibly can. There is a lot of work going on at the moment with additional information being added to the database that I have. There are now over 15 000 names in the database and some 4750 marriages – so you can see the extent of what is going on behind the scenes. I still have a lot of work to do and the names in the database will probably reach about 20 000 or so by the time I’m finished (it may even get to 25 000) and about 10 000 marriages.

It is possible that I’ll be able to add the family trees corrected to what I currently have in the very near future – however, an update for the book is some way off.

Tracing our History: Site Fully Functional

I now have the site back fully functional with what I currently intend to have on it at the moment. There are a number of articles and books that aren’t up yet, as they are yet to be digitalized completely. They are coming.

The family tree (graphics, etc) page is currently up, but no access to the tree exists. There is quite a bit of behind the scenes work being done on the tree which will greatly increase its size and accuracy. The family history book will also be updated once the tree work has been completed. I expect there will be some major advances with some other areas of the site in the coming months also, as more material becomes available.

If you are able to add to the work being done here, please consider getting involved. I would appreciate it greatly, as I am sure future generations of our family will also.

Tracing our History: Front Page Updated

I have been doing a bit of work on the front page of the site and it has now changed a fair bit, with links to various interactive/collaborative sites that enhance Tracing our History. If family members are keen to collaborate and share our family history there are plenty of options and tools now available for that, as well as simply keeping in touch. I think there are some really useful resources there now and hopefully they will continue to be added to.

I still haven’t got the book or tree back online, but that is in the works. More to come soon.
