Notes from the past…

The new blog look is complete!

I think I have everything the way I want it! I’d like to add a few more items, but I don’t want it to look too cluttered. I hate it when I go to a site to do some research and then have to fish through all the “junk” to find what I’m looking for.
Eventually, I’d like to add a third column where I can list my favorite blogs, research sites, books, etc. But not for a while. My eyes are really strained from all this remodeling work!
Also, I finished condensing and adding labels to all the posts.
By the way, check out Family Tree Magazine’s 101 Best Genealogy Web Sites for 2007. A lot of old favorites, but also some exciting new sites!

A few more changes

I’ve been doing a few smaller tasks. I have created a button to link to my genealogy site, rather than the text link. I also added an RSS reader to display recents posts from Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter. This reader was really simple to create, the look can be customized and any RSS feed can be added.
I also signed up to display a link to Footnote.com. This is a really great site and the affiliates program was endorsed by Dick Eastman. His newsletter is the most informative that I have seen and this guy is really knowledgeable about genealogy and the Internet.
Also a button to subscribe to this blog has been added.
