The Week in Review for 1 Oct 2010

Fri. 01 Oct 2010. 1:45 pm

What did we do and find out last week?

  1. I found new information about Marie Flavie Poelman and her family including her aunts, uncles, grandparents and great-grandparents going back to the 1500’s.
  2. I contacted a fellow in Belgium who is a related to us via Marie Flavie’s grandmother. He wrote me back and he has a lot of information that we did not have.
  3. I found new information on some of Odilon’s relatives going back to the early 1800’s.
  4. We learned about some of the history for southern Belgium’s Region of Wallonia.

What’s planned for next week?

  1. Continue researching the new information on the Poelmans.
  2. Researching the new information on Odilon.
  3. Continue adding to the family tree data for the secure website.
  4. New posts scheduled for next week are:
    1. More on the Region of Wallonia.
    2. The “BIG SECRET”.

Requests

I would like to make the following special requests for your help.

  1. If someone could find any information about Odilon’s WWI records, commendations or photographs. Maybe even take a digital photograph of the one picture where he is standing there in his uniform. Yeah the one that Aunt Louise has.
  2. Do you have any vintage photographs of the Marocco family  – particularly when Joseph or Clelia were in their 20’s – you could send me?
  3. If you have already received access permission, please continue to update the Translations spreadsheet. Let me know if you would like to volunteer so that I can give you permission to access it in Google docs.
