New Paint

I decided that a new theme was needed. The previous one was nice, but it has been falling behind in some things. The web moves fast. This one gives me more control over certain things and it listed to have been tested and working in the most common browsers (sadly, even IE6, which I wish would die already.) I’ll probably be making some minor changes and tweaks in the next few days, but I’m pretty happy with it already. It’s slick, simple, and it looks nice without taking you away from the content, which is king.

About Brian Zalewski

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then I’ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012. I can’t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.

The 1940 Census Hunt Begins

How can I go through this week without a post about the 1940 Census? The digital images were released on Monday, April 2nd free for everyone, though I personally never got to see them until late on Monday night. I don’t think they expected as much traffic as they got on day one. I heard […]


  1. Nice redesign! I just did one myself too. I like the changes you’ve made. Your last design never displayed properly for me in Google Chrome :-)

  2. Very nice, Brian!

  3. Really? I use Chrome as my main browser now and I never had issues with it. Well, glad it works now.

  4. Very nice! You’re making me feel guilty, though. My blog needs a facelift much more than yours did!

  5. Haha, don’t feel like that. I quickly get bored of my designs (which is good and bad) so I like to freshen it up a lot. Plus, the old theme was missing a few of the new additions that WordPress has implemented and the fact that this one should work in all major browsers.
