The Week in Review for 15 Oct 2010
Fri. 15 Oct 2010. 1:14 pm
What did we do and find out this week?
- We learned about the Flemish Region of Belgium.
- We talked about Marie Flavie Poleman and her family.
- We took a virtual walk from Wetteren to Heusden to Ghent.
- 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.
- We looked back at an older post to see what I had written was correct or not.
What’s planned for next week?
- Continue researching information on Odilon.
- Continue researching about the Poelmans.
- Continue to add and update the family tree for the secure website.
- New posts scheduled for next week are:
- New information about Odilon’s family.
- More about Flavie’s family.
- Continuing the series of posts on Flanders.
- A new look for the blog site including a new URL.
- 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.
- Reorganized the page listings at the top of every blog page.
- Added a suggestion box at the bottom of every blog page.
- Added new links to the family tree sites for Antoine Verstuyft and Frédérique Vermeersch
- Slightly revised the share icons and links below every post.
- Updated data and site statistics:
A special thanks to the following people for providing links, information, comments, suggestions and other contributions for this blog site during the last week.
- Kris Newport
- Mary Ann Cuccurello
- Antoine Verstuyft
I would like to make the following special requests for your help.
- 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.
- Do you have any vintage photographs of the Marocco family – particularly when Joseph or Clelia were in their 20’s – you could send me?
- 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.
