Yes, it’s that time again. I have just updated my database on the website. This update brings an additional 600+ people to the family and the total number of relatives to just over 25,000. The vast majority of my newly found relatives are members of the Rowles, Ogden, Smeal and Bloom families. I won’t lie to you it has been a chore to keep it all straight, there a lot of cousins marrying cousins and as if that wasn’t enough in some cases a generation or two later they remarried back into the same family. There is still a lot of info yet to enter, so don’t be surprised if I update the database again before the end of the month.
Many of these newly added relatives have birth announcements, marriage announcements, and obituaries transcribed into their notes (Including the name of the newspaper, date of publication and page number(s) if known. I have also been fortunate enough to find a few useable pictures, and original scanned documents. I intend to get these all uploaded and linked to the people they relate to. That project is on my “To Do” list for the time being as I need to find a way to get them all organized, labeled, and formatted for the web. I am not sure just yet what my plan of attack will be, but I do know it will be a huge undertaking, and as such will likely be put on hold until I can take a week off from work.
If anyone finds an error and there are many (I know because I find them all the time.) Please let me know. There are many ways for you to submit corrections, updates and additional information as well as photo’s and documents. As always if you submit something I post I will credit you so that others will be able to find and contact you as well.
I am also looking for cousins who have their genealogies on the web to add to my links pages. If you have a website, ancestry tree, Family Search tree or any other website where you share your genealogy and we are related I would like to trade links with you.
