I've finally done it. After many years of collecting information about my family tree, I have once again attempted to put it on the internet. I didn't simply upload a gedcom file. I actually created the site page by page. I do not have everyone in my Legacy file on the site yet, but it's a start. I even scanned a few photos of my grandfather and linked a photo gallery page to his individual page. I've yet to link all of his siblings but mother and father are linked as well as his spouse, my recently departed grandmother.
It's because of my mother and my grandfather that I got involved in genealogy in the first place. My grandfather was a proud man and would often boast of our Mayflower heritage. My mother started researching another line and of course I wasn't interested at that time. I was curious and started finding out some information online and my mother handed all of her research over to me. She included research that others had sent to her and I started plugging away, adding pieces to the puzzle. I could never get anything in a form where other family members could see what I had compiled.
I'll need to complete the "Contact Us" page so family members and other researchers can correct and add to this research. That shouldn't take me too long. It's a very simple site, there are no bells and whistles. It's neat and legible. I've only one ad on the front page. Please don't think of me as being horrible, it's the badge for Genealogy Wise.
I put in about 12 hours of work today on this site. I would love for my new friends here at Genealogy Wise to take the first peek at my first draft. Please keep in mind I am looking for the plain and simple look. It is in greyscale, much like the old photographs we all find in shoe boxes under our grandmothers bed.
