County Page updates

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Here’s a quick in-between regular posts note…. I’ve been working the last couple days on County page revision and expansion. This is likely a process that will never really end, but…. I’ve made improvements to the following pages: Alamance County Genealogy, Alexander County Genealogy, Alleghany County Genealogy, Anson County Genealogy, Ashe County Genealogy, Avery County [...]

Back to (hopefully) regularly scheduled posts

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Hopefully I’ll be back into a routine of regularly scheduled posts after the absence of the last little spell. It’s been a busy summer and my stockpile of scheduled content hit bottom….. i.e. there were more weeks than there were articles. Things have quited down just a bit so hopefully I’ll have a chance to [...]

County Page Expansion and Revision

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

I spent a good part of February and perhaps March over at the South Carolina Genealogy site expanding and revising the county pages to make them more of what I had envisioned from the outset and I’m starting the process here as well. I’ve toyed with the idea of forgoing frequent posts while I’m in [...]

Map Page is out for the Time Being | Newsletter starting a bit later in the Summer

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

After the Last WordPress Upgrade the Map page has stopped working and I haven’t had a chance to investigate. I do hope to get it back in use as I really liked the idea of putting either Cemeteries or Historic Sites on the map where you could browse by location. Given that I’ve broadened the [...]

New North Carolina Genealogy Forums

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

You will probably have noticed the link at the top of the page for the North Carolina Genealogy Forum. I’ve just finished adding forums for each county of the state and linking to them from the respective county pages. It’s been a long time coming, but feel free to post your genealogy queries in the [...]

Upcoming New Article Series

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

I want to announce a new article series that I’ll be starting this Tuesday. The series focuses on some of the (many) challenges that the digital age presents for genealogists. It is intended to flesh out and expand an article that I have pending for syndication online. I hope you enjoy the series and the [...]

Some Changes Coming Soon.

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

I’ve never been a big fan of “New Year’s Resolutions”. I guess the way I see it, if we want to change the way we do things, there’s no better time to start than right now and turn course and don’t look back. I don’t know, maybe the concept of the New Year’s Resolution seems [...]

Lot’s of good things going on…

Friday, June 15th, 2007

OK, this may not be genealogy related but, I’m going to post it here. This afternoon I was looking into google’s page stats for someone else and happened to notice that THIS site is being indexed again by google. I thought I had noticed a bit of an uptick in traffic the last week or [...]

Webrings and The Rail

Friday, February 9th, 2007

I’ve deleted the webring code and the rail code from the site and don’t expect to be replacing either of those back on the site. This is a frustrating decision, but it stems from the problem that I’ve had with google indexing of this site (non-existent in google.) After a lot of consideration I’ve come [...]

New Cemetery Maps – Google Map mashup

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

I’ve been wanting to give this a try for some time. I haven’t seen any genealogy sites before that have tried combining data on locations with mapping, so I thought the best first place to start might be cemetery data. Unfortunately, it’s a tedious process to enter at this point (name (county) description longitude/latitude). So [...]
