Site Updates

December 6, 2010

Whoa, it's been over 7 years since I've updated this site. I've been a very bad webmaster!

In my defense, I haven't been a total slacker. I worked on the site every once in while during the past 7 years. I just never got around finishing the changes. Unfortunately, somehow, in the last years or so, I uploaded two different versions of the site which were totally incompatible with each other. This lead to lots and lots problems on the site, which necessitated me completely recoding the site from scratch. Hopefully stuff is working now.

-added a step-by-step guide to find Chinese genealogical info using chineseroots.com and the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU). The GSU, a nonprofit institution funded by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormons), has the world's largest collection of genealogical information.
