Thanks to Kendall the multiple scroll bars are now gone. (more…)
Unless I’ve missed something (probably have) everything seems to be working properly now. Ready to start adding the Genealogy data and documentation. NOTE about that; there are a few photos […]
I’m still working on the site but the Genealogy information is available. The Genealogy site is perryfamilyroots.com. (This redirects to russperry.com/WP/genealogy and if your browser blocks the redirection you can just go […]
Since this latest update there’s a bug (at least it bugs me) that puts 2 (sometimes 3) separate scroll bars on some pages and sometimes requires you to move the […]
Still a lot of kinks to work out but things are coming along nicely. Have changed the index file in the main directory to show the site as offline.
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.
If you went to PerryFamilyRoots.com and ended up here it’s because that site is being redirected until I can get everything back up and working there. Everything here is working (I think) but not everything has been added yet. I should be able to spend some time on it now that the crises we’ve been struggling with has ended.Let me know if you need any help.
WOW! So it has been a year! It has been a loongg hectic year and still not really finished with it and running smoothly yet, but I WILL get back to working on the websites shortly.
I haven’t moved the GEDCOM over from PerryFamilyRoots.com yet, so you won’t find any information on the ancestors yet.
This WAS the Home page for PerryFamilyRoots.com. The Genealogy data has all been restored to the Genealogy site (PerryFamilyRoots.com)
PerryFamilyRoots.com has come a long way this month. I’ve actually gotten a few photos and documents attached to the appropriate pages and have the structure all set and the UI all working right. Hopefully it is all self explanatory and intuitive to use and easy to get around on.
The site is back up
no information on anyone in the family tree shows up. The site is built around two critical plugins to wordpress and the recent update to the wordpress core has killed the most important plugin
Have a page for all of the families and all the names attached to the family’s page … started adding photos and documents to the individuals pages, … lots more to do
I’ve been working on the site everyday for the last 4 months so you may find things that have changed
I’ve abandoned PHPGedView for the Family Tree section
things are looking up
I’ve got about half the names linked in to the structure of the site
The work is progressing. … pages for everyone in the tree have been added to the database (over 2550 pages) …
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.

OK, I’ve got the structure now
You may notice that the whole site looks different.
Updated PerryFamilyRoots.com to match content on Ancestry.com. (more…)
I’ve updated the site to match that at Ancestry.com. The update includes deletions of duplicate data and unconnected individuals
I’m playing around with the look of the site so things may change when you least expect it.
There are some 2300 names on the family tree right now at Ancestry.com and over 4000 hints of possible matches to information from the 1940 census and other documentation.
My websites all got hacked. This is now day 3 of cleaning up and recovering. One site (Saintly Sins) is still down. The nerds at DreamHost.com responded very fast. I sent them an email Saturday night … had a response Sunday morning. They had scanned and repaired all that they could, gave me a list of all files on all sites repaired, a list of all files on all sites still infected, a list of all files on all sites in danger of being hacked, and detailed instructions on what and how to get it all cleaned up.
The theft of the computer I used to do my programing for the site cost me my Shutterbug and iWeb files. I foolishly had deleted the backups of these files from my host. But the silver lining is that I’ve simplified everything and created a more logical structure to the sites.
If you visited during the last few days you were greeted by a message that the site was unavailable. That was because I locked everything down. I did that because we were burglarized and all our computers were stolen. I’ve brought the site back up now since I think I have successfully blocked any access by anyone who may have found access information on the computers that were stolen.
I’ve finished another redesign of all my websites and gotten them merged so that there is just one front door to everything. Still have a lot of stuff to get back. This redesign started from scratch except for this blog. The biggest take down was the photo albums. I’ve given up on Gallery. Just too slow and cumbersome in spite of all the great features it offered.
I’m really loving my new MAC! After having used Windows for so many years and dealt with the frustration of the speed (or lack of speed!!) of doing anything on a PC the speed, simplicity, and stability of MAC is like a breath of fresh air. However, I have had to give up some of my favorite software including my favorite editor (1st page by Evrsoft.) BUT… I have now found ShutterBug by Xtralean and with a minor adjustment to my way of approaching things I’m beginning to find it ALMOST as good as 1st Page.
It is not the worst of sins, but I will confess, it is one to which I am highly susceptible. Were it not so I would be posting to this blog on a regular bases and keeping the Gallery up to date.So I have taken the time and worked all day on the Gallery and can now say that all the photos and vids that had disappeared when I upgraded the software a few weeks ago have now been restored.Check it out. There are photos there from places most tourist to Vegas never see or even know about.
