The Week in Review for 10 Dec 2010
Fri. 10 Dec 2010. 7:37 am
I was a little more productive with the posts this week. The work we are having done is pretty much over except for a cabinet door and having two trees cut-down tomorrow. So far everything looks great.
What did we do and find out this week?
- We found out there are five possible locations, rather than four previously found – for a “vrouwstraat” in and around Ghent.
- We looked back at an older post about Bertha and Florence. Although both seemed to have dropped off the map, there maybe a link in 1941 to a Florence Delcourt via a “John J Jomolka”.
- I posted an explanation of how I came up with the title of “The Side Isle”.
- I provided an article from a 1912 National Geographic Magazine about eugenics.
- It was mostly back-up information for this weeks posts.
What’s planned for next week?
- Go back through my sources and see if anyone has been added to other people’s data.
- Trace the route from Ghent to Liverpool to Ellis Island and find out why Flavia had to travel that route.
- New posts scheduled are
- What was it like around 1920 in eastern Angola along the frontier with the Belgian Congo. (Maybe I’ll finally get to this one.)
- I 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.
- Added some more photographs to the “smile” widget.
- Revised the arrangement of the pages listed just under the header.
- Added a snow effect to the blog pages. Corny? I know.
- 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.
- Everyone who stopped by The Side Isle this week – including those people from the Russian Federation who keep trying to post spam comments.
I would like to make the following special requests for your help.
- If anyone has any information or pictures of Odilon’s military service during World War I then please pass it on to me.
- If your picture is in the family-tree and you don’t like it then please send me one that you do like and I’ll replace it.
- Do you have any vintage photographs or documents of anyone or place mentioned here in this blog? If you do then I would like to get a copy. We can try to make arrangements to have them duplicated.
