  13. So, these are the records I have discovered at Ancestry.com. As I go through the images I will try to leave any notes I find helpful about this series of church books. https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/61456/c104_00361?pid=159011469&backurl=https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv%3D1%26dbid%3D61456%26h%3D159011469%26tid%3D165386708%26pid%3D422146954532%26hid%3D1009936244578%26usePUB%3Dtrue%26_phsrc%3DbQn1660%26_phstart%3Ddefault%26usePUBJs%3Dtrue%26currentPageIsStart%3D&treeid=165386708&personid=422146954532&hintid=1009936244578&usePUB=true&_phsrc=bQn1660&_phstart=default&usePUBJs=true#?imageId=c151_00342 Book Years Images Notes Heiraten 1678 - 1743 Heiraten 1744 - 1800 Heriaten 1801 - 1864 1 - 660 Some images hard to read, 1st pass "Tagge" (L) side Heiraten 1801 - 1864 1 - 187 Some images hard to read, 1st pass "Tagge", (R) side / Heiraten 1864 - 1874 188 - 415 Left and Right pages / Tote 1801 - 1802 417 - 479 Taufen 1690 - 1723 Taufen 1724 - 1748 Taufen 1749 - 1766 Taufen 1766 - 1774 Taufen 1774 - 1783 Taufen 1784 - 1800 Taufen 1801 - 1815 5 - 551 Begins 24 Dec 1800 Taufen 1815 - 1837 Taufen 1837 - 1852 10 - 758 Begins Feb 1837 Taufen 1852- 1861 7 - 560 Begins 3 Apr 1852 Taufen 1862- 1874 Tote 1661 - 1749 Tote 1750 - 1777 See marriage book above to find some of the gapped death records, 1778 - 1800 missing Tote 1802 - 1820 Tote 1820 - 1851 View full record

  18. I have been reading the marriage records for a few weeks now. I have noticed a few placenames that are not 100% a part of this list. These placenames are repeated over many years so I am now considering that the names may have changed or morphed over the years. Written Name Possible Name from list above Dreiangel Triangel Westerdeich Many placenames with a following of Westerdeich, or possibly Westerdeichstrich

    I have been using Archion for over a year now and though there are some issues with record availability and potentially language and cultural barriers, most of my interaction has been positive. There main pae is linked below. https://www.archion.de/ You can view the site in English if that helps, but of course the records and most users use German. Many users on the forums are well versed in English, but again there are a few that get quite an opinion about a non-German using or asking questions on the forum. I hope your experiences are better than mine have been, Strangely enough I can write in German, though it is not proper German, I still post my questions in German and a few there get testy from the beginning.

    another round of upgrades..... Yesterday I completed my first draft page for the District of Ditmarschen, in the state of Schleswig- Holstein, Germany, Though it only has the beginnings of high quality infromation, it is a nice step where more information can be presented using our automation and dynamic page creation along with 3 integrated databases. In time I will begin to get more information about Marne, surrounding church regions, archives and images. If you have any suggestions, please post at your convenience.
  21. Updated to a new link. I could not find an English version at present. Good site though.
  22. I have been spending time with this church-book for about a week now. It is finally becoming easier to read as I get used to the handwritting, style, and word selection. I am hoping to document some more details to my Tagge line that came from the region.
  23. I have created the basic page and formatting for the district webpage. The remainder of the state will be built as we create specific content for those districts. This is the first district within Schleswig-Holstein that has an information page and the building blocks for more unique information.
  24. I am not sure of the location. Seems worth a look.
  25. I thought to add a bit more detail to this long GoAncestry journey. The webiste has some more features that were added this last year. FLAG COUNTER I enjoy the flag counter as I get a glimpse into the location our visitors are living. I am not sure it really tells me anything more than that, but that is enough for such aneasy to use application. SECURE Spent some time getting the site into a more secure state. It wasn't insecure to begin with, but the method used to host images and just some linking was keeping the site from recieving the coveted "padlock" of security. I also took time to try and nominate it for review with Norton, but that process is not as easy as one would hope. The unique server certificates are all in place and I hope it allows people to feel a bit more comfortable with their personal data and browsing. GENEALOGY TREES INTEGRATION This is a more recent integration and it looks promising! I have been able to get some rudimentary tailoring of the application, but I really want to do so much more than just upload my family trees. First thing will be to undersatnd what the integration MIGHT do, then determine the level of effort required to get some features built into either application. I think it would be great to have my family's locations presented in our regional pages. Maybe someone will be reading about Westerwald Germany, or even Rockville Nebraska, and then our surnames might show up as a match. There is also an option to link into DNA results, so that would be really fun if I can get it to work reliably. GALLERY Our Galleries have gotten more attention lately. We began to get some images from our friends as well! Whenever you are out having an adventure, maybe get a few pictures and send them to us. We are just looking to have visually appealing images mixed into the look and feel of the website. Mostly we are looking for historically aligned images, buildings, monuments, historical structures, or even just some beautiful scenes from aroung the world. Our other hope is to mix in holiday images throughout the year. Innitially we considered that a fine source for those images will be our postcards project, but more on that later. INTERNATIONAL ADVANCES During the middle of the year I was inspired by our Germany trip and followed up with some more effort on our European pages and forums construct. We have a better presentaion now and I have been able to get some of the regional pages put together to receive more dynamic database feeds. As with all of these things, first there is a concept, then a surge in development, then a pause to let it settle in. With the Genealogy Trees integration I hope I can begin to upload those trees I have been compiling over the years for places like Arhus Denmark, Westerwald Germany, Overlulea Sweden, and so forth. I just need to grasp what would be helpful and then see if I can figure out how to do it. ............ and so goes another year of effort at GoAncestry.com, enjoy your research!
