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 … [Read more...]

Everything I Know About Frank Zalewski

I have a new site to show all of you. But, first, how it all came to be. While I was searching for more information on a passenger ship from one of my ancestors a few months back, I ran across a site called "Everything I Know About Hyman Victor." The site is basically one man's story about his … [Read more...]

A New Coat of Paint

I had some inspiration yesterday on a new look for my family site. Previously, the family site design just copied this blog design (with some tweaks) to make it easier. I had an idea to show off some of the great photos I have in my collection to visitors of the site. Last night and today I put it … [Read more...]

Theme Change

It was also statring to load a bit slow, at least for … [Read more...]

Updates

Well, my Grandpa is doing much better now. My wife and I visited him in the hospital on Saturday and he was his old joking self. Hopefully, he'll be coming home shortly. I've been out of the "genealogy circuit" here for the last few weeks, so that's why I've been slow on the posts. I'm working on … [Read more...]
