Week of 9/12/2010 Review

What did we find out last week?

  1. We found that Odilon’s father was named Gustave and his mother was named Florence Tylgat/Tylgall.
  2. We found another source that indicated Flavie’s mother’s name was Mary Poelman
    1. And that the witnesses were Mary Poelman (probably Marie Pommel/Pomelle) and Emil/Emiel Poelman.
  3. We made an assumption that Flavie’s mother, Mary, may have had a maiden name of Pommel/Pomelle.
    1. This would make Mary and Marie sisters which conforms with what I heard that our great-grandmother had a sister, possibly her twin. This information is still unverified.

What’s planned for next week?

  1. Continue researching the Gurnaey surname and what happened to Bertha and Florence.
  2. Review information I have done in the past regarding Newports in 1300 to 1600 England for future posts.
  3. Cleaning-up and adding to the genealogy data and update the secure website.


  1. Added a copy of the Detroit marriage register for Odilon and Flavie.
  2. Removed the People page, Family Tree page and all of the Descendant pages.
  3. Launched a new secure website that contains all of the family data and graphics.


  1. Purchased a new genealogy program.
  2. Re-arranged some of the right side and bottom widgets.
  3. Revised the email notification policy.
  4. Donation pledges remains at $400.
  5. We are up to 381 visitor hits from last week’s 282 hits.
