The Week in Review for 17 Dec 2010

Fri. 17 Dec 2010. 8:26 am

Seven more shopping days until Christmas…have you given Santa your list yet?







What did we do and find out this week?

  1. Posts
    1. We finally found out where “vrouwstraat” in Ghent really is.
    2. I started the first in a series of posts about my dad’s parents.

What’s planned for next week?

  1. Research
    1. Go back through my sources and see if anyone has been added to other people’s data.
    2. Continue to research the route from Ghent to Liverpool to Ellis Island and find out why Flavia had to travel that route.
  2. No new posts are scheduled


  1. I 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.


  1. I revised and removed a number of photographs from the “smile” widget.
  2. The week’s updates for the family tree statistics and the number of The SIde Isle visitor hits:

Persons Families Hits
This Week 930 352 1,282
Last Week 930 352 1,220


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. Antoine Verstuyft
    1. For providing the location of “vrowstraat”
  2. Jill
    1. For letting me know some people were concerned about privacy issues with several of the photographs in the “smile” widget.
  3. Everyone who stopped by The Side Isle this week.


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

  1. If anyone has any information or pictures of Odilon’s military service during World War I then please pass it on to me.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
