Seven Years

Typewriter

According to my list of posts, seven years ago today is the day I started blogging on this site. Some would call it my "blogiversary." My first post wasn't very exciting as it looks to just be a copy of a story about Irish genealogy. Though, I quickly found my way and started to write better, more … [Read more...]

The Zalewski Project

I recently ran across a website for a specific surname that's goal was to collect all of the information it could and provide it in one easy location. The Rainwater Collection of Genealogy Resources purpose is "to assist serious genealogical researchers in their research by providing an archive of … [Read more...]

Pardon..

Don't mind the sudden theme change. Working with a new theme framework and it's easier if I enable it before working with it, otherwise it breaks my current theme. Update: It should be working better now. Let me know if you find anything broken. I will be adding more "customization" to it soon. … [Read more...]

I have yet to see all of the new features and … [Read more...]

Oooh, Shiny..

UPDATE 5/24/12: This specific widget is no longer being used on my new template, though I am working on something similar. I had some crazy idea earlier this week on something I wanted to develop for the site. I thought, what if people were able to hover over links that I have to my family tree … [Read more...]

Family Tree Overhaul

Construction

I recently re-installed the Family Tree area of my website. You won't really notice anything different, but I had to do some back-end stuff. It's been awhile since I had originally installed the site, so it became pretty confusing. A clean install is much nicer. But, along with this new install, … [Read more...]
