The Week in Review for 15 Oct 2010

Fri. 15 Oct 2010. 1:14 pm

What did we do and find out this week?

  1. We learned about the Flemish Region of Belgium.
  2. We talked about Marie Flavie Poleman and her family.
  3. We took a virtual walk from Wetteren to Heusden to Ghent.
  4. We came to the realization that, not only is Marie Flavie probably illegitimate, but that she and her mother Octavie did not tell the truth when they came through Ellis Island.
  5. We looked back at an older post to see what I had written was correct or not.

What’s planned for next week?

  1. Continue researching information on Odilon.
  2. Continue researching about the Poelmans.
  3. Continue to add and update the family tree for the secure website.
  4. New posts scheduled for next week are:
    1. New information about Odilon’s family.
    2. More about Flavie’s family.
    3. Continuing the series of posts on Flanders.
  5. A new look for the blog site including a new URL.


  1. Updated the Translations page.
  2. Updated The Side Isle secure website.


  1. Added an Index page and included links at the page listing at the top of the blog page and at the bottom left of the blog pages.
  2. Reorganized the page listings at the top of every blog page.
  3. Added a suggestion box at the bottom of every blog page.
  4. Added new links to the family tree sites for Antoine Verstuyft and Frédérique Vermeersch

A special thanks to the following people for providing links, information, comments, suggestions and other contributions for this blog site during the last week.

  2. Mary Ann Cuccurello
  3. Antoine Verstuyft


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.
