It's been almost 4 months since my last gedcom update. I didn't take the time to compute how many documents or individuals were added but I can honestly say, it was not a small amount. I plan on making gedcom updates monthly to reflect my work.
The main reason it's taking more time is I'm also reconciling my records with the new FamilySearch FamilyTree as well as combining the many duplicate records that are out there…and there are many. Some individuals had more than 6 records! It takes a lot of work combining these records as well as adding all my sources as well.
Why do all this work? I spend alot of my time working on this project. It's one of my life goals (besides being the best husband and father that I can be!) to have as complete a family history as possible, not just for myself but for later generations! I try to be as thorough as I can. Heck, I'm still learning and fixing mistakes I've made myself in the past 20 years. Family history is a continual learning curve. Take that and add all the FamilySearch submissions and you have a handful!
By taking the time now, adding my sources and reasons why I believe my information is the most correct should ensure less mistakes in the future.
How can you help? Be patient as I work. Pray for me. Ask questions! Send more information my way including photos of significant events.

OK, the font is way too small here. It's ridiculous. I talked to the dKret2 author and he said it was as simple as removing all the font size attributes from the default skin. Argh! Nothing ever is as simple as….well unless I say it is.
The file is a jumble. You know the kind….code all over the place with special characters inserted everywhere. I don't know how it happens but it's a pain nonetheless.
Anyways, by removing the font-size attributes, my forum will look like dKret2. Although I'm all for being unique, I just want this to be bigger!
