Redesigned

Have been totally redesigning the site and have most things organized.  Still a few things missing so you may see what looks like garbage to you instead of what you expected to see when you click on a few things.  I’m getting to them.  Right now I’m trying to decide the best way to incorporate over 2500 individuals and all their source and documentation information without slowing the site down more than can be tolerated.

Status of the Genealogy site.

Have been working on PerryFamilyRoots.com and things are coming along nicely.  Have the structure set and navigation well underway.  Dreamhost, (Where this site resides,) and a lot of other hosts with WordPress sites got hit by a major cyber hack this week.  They identified 90,000 sites around the world that were trying to break into WordPress sites on their servers.  Several other sites I was on this week also had the same thing going on.  The servers were overloaded and a lot of  WordPress sites just couldn’t be reached.  Mine included.

1940 U.S. Federal Census

From Ancestry.com
The National Archives and Records Administration will open the 1940 U.S. Federal Census on April 2, 2012—the first time this collection will be made available to the public. Ancestry.com will begin uploading census images to  so the public can browse them. Initially, this collection will be  a browse-only collection. This means a person can scroll through the pages of the census districts much like you would look at a microfilm or a book.
