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 www.earlyMaine.org. 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 earlyMaine.org, 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 earlyMaine.org
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 The software that I have been using on the site for the past few years was seriously out of date (and no longer supported) so I thought it was about time I put some effort into maintenance rather than posting new material online.
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.
