The Week in Review for 26 Nov 2010
Fri. 26 Nov 2010. 7:26 am
Since most of us have had our annual sacrificial bird offering I guess we are officially into the holiday season. Don’t forget to get those lights up soon; and for those who still have them up from last year – well go ahead and plug them boogers in already.
What did we do and find out this week?
- I checked out information on the history of the American Volunteer Group (AVG), also known as the Flying Tigers, for some future posts.
- Took a look at some information on the Quakers, particularly one book titled “Memoir of Elizabeth Newport”, compiled by Ann A. Townsend.
What’s planned for next week?
- Continue to try and find out what and where “vrouwstraat” in Ghent really is.
- New posts scheduled are
- What was it like around 1920 in eastern Angola along the frontier with the Belgian Congo.
- A little bit on the American Volunteer Group and how we all maybe connected to it.
- Continued to clean-up data on 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. Your help in proofing this data would be greatly appreciated.
- I went through the photograph files from Steph’s collection that I received from Kris and cleaned them up.
- Added a few old photographs to the “smile” widget.
- Added a link to nominate The Side Isle for a spot on Family Tree Magazine’s top 40 best genealogy blogs for 2011.
- The week’s updates for the family tree statistics and the number of The SIde Isle visitor hits:
