Genealogy Site Update

I have been hard at work this weekend preparing a new genealogy site. To me, the current site had gotten old and out dated. The appearance was very dated and ease of use for non-technical folks was sometimes questioned.

I had hoped to announce the site tonight, but I am still struggling with auto directing page requests to the old genealogy site to the new site. So, hopefully in the next day or two, I will announce the site.

There isnt really much new data on the site, just a repackaging of the site. I hope to make some updates here real soon.

Today, my Mother’s cousin, Elaine Fontana, came over to visit us. She has a wealth of information on my Mother’s side of the family and should be providing that real soon. I have a stack of data on Suzanne’s side of the family too. I just need to find time to go through it. With my goal of redesigning Cruise Talk Central, the time part of the equation has been difficult.

Be on the lookout for the new site in the next few days.


  1. I am curious what tool you are migrating to from phpGedView.


  2. The Next Generation… if you click on my genealogy link it will redirect you there… make formal announcement tonight… still do most of my work offline in Family Tree Maker and then upload the gedcom for viewing and receiving of comments/suggestions…

  3. Weird…if I try to click on the comment on the first page of your blog, it goes into indefinite “working” status and neve rbrings up the comment form. If I go to your last page and do the same, it comes right up….and then I return to the first page and it works…..might be an IE thing…..I will try it on Firefox. By the way, nice looking Genealogy interface!

  4. hmmm…works like a champ first time in Firefox…must be another undocumented feature in IE.

  5. oh great… gotta love IE… IE7 just wont run on my computer any more so hard to test… I do check out things in the poor step child IE6… one of these days I have to figure out the IE7 on my computer… it just stopped working after a windows update one day… have uninstalled it twice but reinstalling it fails to get it working…

    still a bunch more to do on the genealogy, like research ๐Ÿ˜‰ , but that was done this weekend… with most my work offline, I wanted a nice user interface…
