The Week in Review for 12 Nov 2010
Fri. 12 Nov 2010. 7:53 am
What did we do and find out this week?
As you have seen it wasn’t a very productive week for writing posts.
- We found there are four possible locations for “vrouwstraat”. Three out of the four locations are related to a Béguinage. A Béguinage is basically a lay women’s village run by the Roman Catholics.
- A lot of time was spent retrieving data from one of my old hard-drives that had crashed.
- I was able to recover my pictures and my genealogy data, although the genealogy data needs a lot of clean-up since I’m now using a different genealogy software program.
- I looked up some information on the history of diamond mining in Africa, specifically Angola.
What’s planned for next week?
- More on the location where Flavia Maria Poelman was born.
- New posts scheduled are
- The area in Ghent where Flavia Maria Poelman was born.
- An introductory post for the Newport side of the family.
- Revisit one of the older posts to see what has changed.
- Clean-up data from my recovered hard-drive.
- Update The Side Isle secure website.
- Please remember this is a work-in-progress and, as such, there are a lot of inaccuracies and missing data. You help in proofing this data would be greatly appreciated.
- The week’s updates for the family tree statistics and the number of The SIde Isle visitor hits:
A special thanks to the following people for providing links, information, comments, suggestions and other contributions for this blog site during the last week.

I would like to make the following special requests for your help.
- Do you have any vintage photographs or documents of anyone mentioned here in this blog? If you do then we can try to make arrangements to have them duplicated.
