Bedell family

Delores Dickson sent us a link to her research page on the Bedell family. She explains why Margery Bedell should not be linked to John and Margaret Bedell, but instead Thomas Bedell. We corrected our information to show what she learned. The link is: Brock, Bedell Family Research. We used her work to make the following changes:

  1. Dates changed on Margery Bedell (i13040)
  2. Dates changed on William Brock
  3. Three children added to William and Margery Brock
  4. Marriage year changed
  5. William Brock’s second wife added and marriage date
  6. Margery Bedell parents changed to new parents
  7. Her brother’s group sheet info added, John Bedell and children
  8. Thomas Bedell family group sheet added

In regard to my wife’s family of Bedell’s we again took a look to see if we could make the bridge to Europe and expanded the following parts:

  1. Added four children to Richard Bedell born about 1763
  2. Daniel Bedell dates and family expanded
  3. Daniel Bedell parents added
  4. Pedigree worked into England but turned to Beadle instead of Bedells of other Bedells in tree.

Graphic Files all broken

Howdy all! There was a fatality in the process of moving to a new website. Something went wrong and we had to remove all the images and their links from the new setup, since they were duplicated! So now we have to go through each of the over 1700 files and tell them what category they belong to, what album they go to, and where their thumbnails are, and whether or not they are the default image for each person.

In short, this is going to take many hours of work to restore, so they will be appearing as we have time to sift through the huge pile. I do hope for this reason alone that we will not have to move again very soon. This job is huge and follows many hours of trying to move things. So in the meanwhile, please be patient! You can certainly point things out and those items will be handled with a priority over the general list.

So what does this mean? It means work on other aspects of the family tree has to take a back seat till this project is restored. I will be so glad when I can sit back and know that there is a family line that is completely done and current and only needs to be looked at to add current events or recovered photos and information.

Website Directories

We have added the update blogs to each directory page! Now instead of having to go to the special blog setup, you can see the updates in each Family Directory page! Enjoy!

We also made a special date graphic for the setup to add a little spice to the pages.

I did not realize there were so many directory pages! We still have a few more to turn back on, but we certainly have more than I expected! I also did not realize that so much gets done. Seeing the news on some families I did not think I had worked on for a while was surprising. I really like this new setup! Hope you like it too.

As I installed this, I updated the code on the pages and made some other changes. Now that I have a news section with each directory page, I will work on making the headings more appropriate and the links also become more valuable. So that is the plan now, to include more links to the people that get updates!

Oh, and another change, we dropped the â??Updatesâ? button from the main menu, since it is not important anymore!

Richard August Meyer

Well, it was time to revisit Richard August Meyer and redo the previous work, expanding on it slightly. Now the old website files have been deleted! We also added new information gleaned for his wife, Helen. We hope to get more information on this couple before it is too late! If you can help with photos, information on their education, or anything else, please do so.

This post requires we reopen the Meyer family tree directory and as well as add a new news category for the Meyer family.

Richard Edward Meyer

Well, today we got the Richard Edward Meyer family all transferred. We need to do more work on this family and hopefully can progress soon. The closing down of the old files has been a huge stall to our work! This family was a hard working family, that tanned leather.

This brings the Meyer section down to one more family of old data to check! Maybe it will get done this week!

Christian Friedrich Wilhelm Meyer

This is the last of the Meyer folders that needed to be double checked before being deleted! We now have all the old data preserved so we can continue research for new data in the days ahead.

Meyer Family Back!

We had to shut down the Meyer family directory because the move to this new website meant a lot of changes to fit into the much smaller web space. We are still banging against the limits of space, but am glad to finally announce the reopening of the Meyer family directory. It is hoped we will have time to dig deeper into this family and bring it to “life” again. If you have anything you can share, please contact me!
