August 2020

Lots of happenings. I have sold the old yellow steel boat. It is still moored in the river at the end of Coates St, however, it will be going to its new home in Brisbane this year. I have bought a small catamaran to sail in the river. It is in the backyard being restored, We now have an NBN connection, unlimited access to the internet, which ends our saga of poor internet connection started in 2010. I have built 3 new computers running windows 7 with large screens so I can now transfer information from the internet to the websites and check up using my databases that the info is accurate. I can now upload the family photos I have accumulated without blowing my quota every month. Finally the family websites have had a large increase in visits, must be the corona-virus effect. Gordon

Website Updates

I have started adding extra details to www.trueloves.info for Albert Truelove and George William Mclaren. The search engine at My Heritage appears to have run out of any further details of immediate family members, so the actual family tree is stabilising. I am still updating the Illabo part of the Truelove family as I have found some old information supplied by Nick Truelove in 2004. Have had contact with John Schubert’s website and discovered the original ancestory research there had more Mclaren relatives than previously found. George Mclaren, George William’s father was married twice so George William had step brothers and sisters in Scotland. In www.truelove-family.info I have restored some of the original graphics.

The final family tree for 2019 is available

I have uploaded the final 2019 file for the complete tree to http://www.truelove-family.info. The file doesn’t upload correctly. It is missing my small bit of the family and I can’t work out why. I will investigate after Christmas. There are 2000 family members in the file. I am not uploading it to the other webtrees until I sort out whats wrong.

This Blog program is working.

Have tried to change some of the features here, but no success. However, it will do to provide information about whats happening with the sites.
I have not as yet come up with a firm vision of how it should all work. I do have problems with the Webtrees program. Its graphics are sort of restricted. It is still better than the other available and has more features which I have been investigating. The basis of most genealogy now is the GED file and Webtrees works with it. I have put a program on my computer which builds GED files. So I can upload the GED file instead of using Webtree to build it online. I have also re-discovered that there were/are at least 5 distinct Truelove Families from England. So I need to have a multiple facetted Webtree with the distinct Family lines in it. From that we should be able to see if there are any connections available. I am going to keep the other types of genealogy displays, ie the old one with the graphic vertical trees and the plain name listings. The plain name listing is at www.truelove-genealogy.net and the graphics will be at www.truelove-family.info. The webtrees will remain at www.trueloves.info. More later on this. Gordon.
