Family File is Updated!

I've updated the NFB gedcom at World Connect. I'm really happy to be able to announce this because it has been SOooooo long since I've updated my genealogy research work. Changes with this update were minor and included merges of duplicate individuals in the Maria Ruperta Banegas Ackenback lines. I was also able to clean up some source references and fill in small details from old emails that had never been added to the database.

Ideally, I'd love to update the file monthly, but I think for starters a more realistic and modest goal would be quarterly updates.

If you have any comments or corrections, please let me know. Thanks!

First Order of Business

Since the online family research file was last updated in June, 2002 my first task is to upload my current file to the World Family Tree. You can reach this online file via the links list at the right side of this page (look for the Searchable Banegas Family File link), or by clicking here.

I plan to have an updated file loaded by the end of the month, for a nice fresh start to 2008. I'll be sure to post a note on the blog once the file is uploaded.

A Fresh Start

After a long hiatus, I've decided to dig back into the family roots. It's been a good five years since the old "glory days" of NFB (remember --newsletter, website, family intranet, etc.?) But since I don't have the time I used to have to spend on researching and communicating this blog will have to serve as my present way to share genealogical findings.

I'll also be posting pictures and may also republish pieces from the old family newsletter, and any other items that seem noteworthy. As always, your comments are most welcome.

Thanks for reading!
