New Look

After many years, my family history site is getting a facelift. I am re doing it with "Google Sites" - for many reasons. 

  1.  It was looking dated and tired.
  2. The family is getting bigger! I'm a grandmother now.. there were a lot of babies added to our family in the past few years.
  3. I was the only one who could add to it directly. Google Sites allows me to add trusted family to "editor" status, so they can add, update and share directly, from their computer and location, anytime they are connected to the internet. This family history is a big job, enough to go around!
  4. I'm a big "Googler" and Google Sites will play nicer in search results and connect to G+ directly. The tools on this page also allow me to easily and quickly add map snippets to items, so you can see "where" something took place. In genealogy, the "where" is as important as the "who" and the "why". 
  5. I like learning new ways to do things. So far, I'm impressed with "sites" and hope it continues to get better and better.
