Website Updated


Website Updated

I generated my website database of nearly 25,000 relatives and uploaded it. With filtering and editing, it took most of the afternoon, but is working now. I asked FreeFind.com re-index (spider) my site so that my search engine will work properly, and already they report that they have done so.  

I try to do a major website update twice a year, but this time it only happened once. I still hope to create a 2012 version of the Buchanan Family Tree book before Christmas, and that deadline is approaching rapidly.

I am making good progress on the Lidgett Family book, which is a much more involved effort. Fortunately I have help from some Lidgett family members who provide information that my own research would never find. Some of the stories are quite interesting. What would you do if you had a dairy farm of Guernsey cows and your milk quota was cut 50%? You can read Brian and Brenda Moore's story at http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/8965780.Brymor_ice_cream_founder_dies_at_76/

Or find out about the movie version at http://www.yorkshirefilmarchive.com/film/spoilt-choice 

Everyone has their own battles to fight. The Moores' fight was with the European Union's milk quota, and then with their local government. I loved reading the story!
