To My Alabama Kinchaser's Genealogy
Office on the web.
I have helps, surnames, ancestor
stories links and some mysteries. We genealogist just love
As you can see I am busy doing
things on the computer! Be it surfing the web for more information or
working on my web pages.
I have been doing genealogy for
35+ years. Long before the computer got into the business! Why we use
to have to send off more letters snail mail and hope and pray for a
reply. Everything had to be entered in by pencil until it was
documented! If we sent out 40 or more letters we were lucky if we
got one or two replies. Now with the computer that has all changed to
the other side of the coin.
Some changes I don't like is
that a lot of the time the surnames are not all caps. I feel it is so
much easier to find them in the text if they are all caps like we use
November 2005, I am in the
process of moving all my sites to my domain. I have gotten so tired of
the pop ups! Here you will have no pop ups!
I have currently 128 surname
pages, plus link pages, mystery pages, genealogy help pages and family
or just general ancestor stories. I also have several Sandra Gorin
genealogy helps and fun pages. Used with her permission of course. That
is a lot of pages to keep my eye on, so if something is amiss please
let me know. I have other pages for a Victorian Manor,
Grandmother's House, Photo album, Memorials and ones for Fibromyalgia.
I have updated some surnames and
added some new ones in this move. Some information is yet to be
documented. People send me information and I try to document it,
sometimes there is not enough time to do so and I put it out for others
to see and let me know if it is true or not.
Not all surnames in my data base
are online, maybe just a mention. I have tried to keep it to my direct
line only as to do other wise would take up more room. Also I put these
in book registry form I find it is easier to follow.
If you find a link that does not
work please let me know. I hope I can help you in some small way. I
feel if we help each other that way things will get solved much
more then doing it on our own.
Check out Family History
Page dedicated to the
Christmas, Stewart and Susong Groups along with all my 'cuzzies' I have
met doing genealogy. Also to all the relatives I would have not met
otherwise. This is my Family Photo Album part of my site. There are ancestor
pictures there also.
I have tried not to put up any
living people on my pages. If you find anyone that is there and living.
Please let me know and I will remove them immediately!
Chris Stern who has done some
lovely genealogy graphics took the site down in protest of finding
their name on the web at Rootsweb.
I wish my own office looked this
neat. LOL It has been a job trying to redo over 100 pages and adding
I use to use Netscape composer
but found not all browsers are compatible with it. After some looking
around and trying several different programs I finally settled on
FrontPage and Webpage Maker see my links
page. Right now the
link will take you to their web site. I find it an easy program to use.
There are some draw backs that I would like to do but over all it is
the best program out there for the money. For some pages I have used
FrontPage, because of the draw backs in Webpage Maker, like the
multiple background ones. Sometimes I edit the html in Notepad.
I use to use html to make a page
but since 2003 my Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Fibro Frog seems to
have taken that power from me. If you want to know more about
Fibromyalgia Syndrome go to my Gentle Hugs web pages. In 1999 my
husband of 39 yrs 2 days passed away. I put up genealogy for a while.
Then I moved from Nebraska to Alabama and have not had the room to put
out all my files. I hope to go through them and put them all on
CD-ROMS. Isn't computing a boom to genealogy? Think of all the trees we
will save and the room in the filing system!
Now speaking of documentation, I
have a lot of documents information not entered into the computer at
this time. I have been trying to correct this. When I first started on
the computer my husband was worried about the space all this was taking
up! Come to find out, it wasn't the text files taking up all the
space. Oh well, it keeps me busy now. Now that I had to retire.
I use RootsMagic put out by the same people who put out
Family Origins several years ago. Family Origins was my second
genealogy program . I like these two programs much better then the rest
on the market and I have tried most of them.
When ever you see
'Home' on any of my Genealogy pages the link will bring you back here.
I have several pages for you to visit. So check out my site map link.
This will take
you to my Library where you will find some stories and genealogy helps.
I have written some of the stories and some are from family members.
There are some genealogy helps and stories are written/copyrighted by
Sandra K Gorin, who gave me permission to use them. Thank you
very much Sandra.
