What's New (past 30 days)

24 Nov 2018

Updated the website today, as there are better looking templates to choose from now that I have updated the software. I will be doing my usual end of year tree update next month. And, I will also be adding several other trees to my site that I haven't integrated with my main tree (because they need that one crucial piece of evidence that proves beyond a doubt that they are our ancestors).

Updated the tree today, lots of new data has been found over the year. I still haven't added any pictures to DeadFred or AncientFaces though, the excuse being that they make it impossible to add images in bulk, so it becomes a rather annoying time consuming project.

I learned how to attach .pdf files to my records on this site, so will be continuing to add documents as time allows. Today lots of photographs were added, mostly of headstones, but a few others of interest. While I have been busy posting family images on my instagram account (because it is very simple and quick to do), I haven't added any to my recently created DeadFred and AncientFaces accounts. That is another time consuming project that I can only do when I have the energy to sit down and do it. Eventually.

I have updated my tree again. I will also be adding new photos and documents soon.

AFTERTHOUGHT: Recently, to increase the exposure of our family photos, I have started accounts with DeadFred, Instagram (jenbumann, #jensancestors) and AncientFaces.

See, I updated the family tree already. Even managed to get certain notes, like census records, to show up this time. Added lots more pics and documents last weekend, will continue to do so as time goes by.

This website is what is new! All sparkly and glowing. I have been adding images to the site this weekend and plan on adding documents too, both of which were real pains in the tuckas to do before. With this new site, it will be a breeze.
