Yes, the project & I are still alive...

Well, there is no denying it.  2009 has been an abysmal year for my work as it relates to  Between some software issues, hardware issues and other work I've taken on as part of my local genealogical society, there has been very little time afforded to this project.

Every week I receive an email or two asking if the project is dead, and I got another today inquiring about a brokem link to this site.

I want to assure anyone who checks in periodically that the project is not dead, and I have been working on it over the past couple of weeks to move files and do all that "behind the scenes work" everyone says they're doing, even though you can't see it.  It really IS happening, and you'll see the results within a few days with any luck.

While 2009 has been challenging for, to say the least, I'm looking forward to 2010 as a great new year, and one in which we'll see many more items of interest posted to the site.

New Look for

It has been months since my last post, but not for a lack of working on the site. I have been feverishly working on updating some of the components of the site.  The software that I have been using on the site for the past few years was seriously out of date (and no longer supported) so I thought it was about time I put some effort into maintenance rather than posting new material online.

With all of that said, you will note many of the tabs across the top of the page are not currently working. i' am finishing up the conversion of files from the old site to the new site this week. In the mean time, I wanted to give a glimpse into the new format of the site.

I took a good look at what was working well on the old site, and where people were spending their time, and am going to use that information to help streamline the new site into a leaner format that contains only the parts and piece that were being utilized before. So, if you think something is missing from the new site, it may be done on purpose, or I may have left it out accidently.  Email me and let me know if are looking for something that's not showing up here.  Once the transition is smoothed out, I'll post a specific list of things that I left out so everyone will know where I'm coming from.

If you are interested in going to the Gravestone Photo Project, please go to:

until I get the chance to add that link back to the tabs above.

As always, feel free to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Thanks for your patience while I finish moving the site over to the new format,

Pejepscot Genealogy Society's summer meeting

For the past few summers, members of the Pejepscot Genealogy Society have gotten together in an informal setting during the months of June, July and August to help others who may be struggling to get past their own brick wall, or just need some help getting started with their research.  If you are having trouble locating an ancestor, or need some help to keep moving back in one of your lines, you are not alone. 

The Pejepscot Genealogy Society's summer meeting will be held on Sunday, August 9, 2009 at 2 PM at the home of Ann Frey in Brunswick.

Don't stew over your research problems alone. There's more than one way to locate an ancestor!
