I’m Bob (and Leah – she wasn’t able to be in Edithburgh).
I want to say how enjoyable the reunion in SA was. Congratulations to the organisers. Let’s do it again sometime.
We spoke of having a web page to share our knowledge and continue friendships.
Well, here is the first offering. Still having uncertainties about how much information to have on these pages. We’ll probably password protect the initial entry, and have a couple of moderators to oversee the site.
The site is split into 2 parts. This part is a WordPress site that allows the plugin to display Gedcom’s and a type of family tree. There are controls on it that allow the administrator to restrict the names listed. At the moment, I picked out a few names from the 19th century or before, and instructed the program not to show names of people that are still living, or have a birth date of less than 100 years ago. (Anyone still in that mix? 🙂 ). You can see the family tree displayed at the “person index” link seen on this page (or click on http://www.caldwelltree.id.au/?page_id=6). Then click on the link number on right-hand side to open up the tree part. I haven’t spent much time on yet, so that’s just a taste of it.
I have also added a forum to allow discussion threads. See www.caldwelltree.id.au/bulletin and register as a user. I hope you find it simple.
Suggestions are welcome, but bear in mind I don’t have a lot of spare time. Contact me if you would like to help out as a moderator or administrator.
