I was doing some updates behind the scenes here at saurette.com and noticed that it has been a looooong time since I posted anything. I have not been doing much genealogy related work with the exception of handling some email inquiries. I suspect that the warmer weather will cause people to do other things, myself included. If, however, you are still doing your genealogy and need or want my help, you can always drop me a line. I’m here to help if you need it. This just happens to be one of those times in my life that genealogy is lower on my list of “things-to-do” in my spare time.
Have a great summer, people! Thanks for all the hits in the databases as well.
There’s be no shortage of traffic to my databases recently – gotta love Google. I’m not sure what people are looking for exactly, but I see lots of people browsing the data, but do not get many requests for more information like I used to. And because of that, I decided to let my Ancestry.com subscription lapse. Three-hundred dollars for one year of access is a lot – especially when I have no money coming in from doing research or other ventures.
This site gets anywhere from 40-60 people looking at stuff per day. I’ve always been happy with that since I felt that would lead people to contact me for some other information. What I think has happened is that more and more people are able to find their genealogy online – either done by somebody else or places to look themselves.
I’m not sure what that means for my site, but I will keep my database updated as I add new stuff to it, but there haven’t been many new updates lately and unless I do a bunch of data entry, I wouldn’t expect the site to change much.
If you land on this site and have questions, let me know. If you find information on this site that is useful, great, but let me know – just so I don’t feel like I’m wasting my time. For those of you who have shared data with me and/or emails, thanks a lot. It’s been great helping you get your genealogy researched.
I’ve done a redesign (yet again) of the site. All the genealogy databases were untouched by this. I did add a Webtrees database for fun. It is a fork of the phpGedView program.
I also added a Google custom search on the front page as well as a nice way to share my posts (when I finally write some). If anyone wants a Google+ invite, let me know as I’m in the system now.
Saw this picture today and couldn’t resist dropping it onto the site.
Contrary to how it may seem, I’m still around. Hard to say where they time has gone, but I’m here. I’ve got a few ideas in the works for web stuff and genealogy so I’m working on those. For now, however, not much has changed in my database. I do need to update it on the site as I have made some new changes.
