The Week in Review for 3 Dec 2010

Fri. 03 Dec 2010. 10:28 am

We are still having work done at our house so it’s really messed up my schedule – even the dog and cat are acting a bit off. But it looks like things are just about done.

What did we do and find out this week?

  1. Posts
    1. A little bit of information about the formation of the “Flying Tigers” during World War II.
    2. We found out about a really bad storm on the Great Lakes in 1913 that probably impacted Odilon when he was in Chicago.

What’s planned for next week?

  1. Research
    1. Continue to try and find out what and where “vrouwstraat” in Ghent really is.
  2. New posts scheduled are
    1. What was it like around 1920 in eastern Angola along the frontier with the Belgian Congo.


  1. Continued to clean-up data on The Side Isle secure website.
    1. 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.
  2. Added some more photographs to the “smile” widget.


  1. Removed the link to nominate The Side Isle for a spot on Family Tree Magazine’s top 40 best genealogy blogs for 2011.
  2. Added a quick-jump for the Ghent street index page.
  3. The week’s updates for the family tree statistics and the number of The SIde Isle visitor hits:

Persons Families Hits
This Week 925 355 1,189
Last Week 925 355 1,132


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

  1. Everyone who stopped by The Side Isle.


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

  1. 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.
