This blog will reflect the progress of my genealogy project(s). I will describe any major changes that I make on my website and I will document how I solved some brick walls.

My Manery Cousins

I noticed today that my Manery cousins appear on both the Striker and Broder subsites.  While this is correct, not everyone who should have appeared was included on both sites.  I've made those corrections and now all the Manerys appear on both sites.

Format changes

The latest version of Second Site, the program I use to create my site, has some new features.  One of them is the ability to group specific types of information and format the group differently from the rest of the information.  I have used this new facility to remove the census information from the narrative portion of a person's page and move it into a table following the narrative.  This makes it easier to follow the narrative, especially for people who appeared on several censuses.  An example of the new format is here.

Another new cousin and more information

Today I received a note from Murray Deacon.  Murray is my third cousin -- gr-grandson of my gr-grandaunt Julia Broder.  Murray advised me that his father Gerald Deacon died on 24 Oct 2009.   I have added this information and republished the site.  This update also picked up some minor additions that I had made over the past few months to other members of the Broder family.  These are mostly related to newspaper clippings that provided additional sources and exhibits.
