21 Sept 2011

As we push for our annual pre-High Holiday update, we finally have the glitches worked out of the new database software.  You can now search and see the information in a variety of ways, including the family group list, the graphic family tree, ancestors and descendants.  You can calculate relationships (remembering that since we don't have everyone in the database, it can only calculate from what we have), and some users will be given responsibility for updating their branch of the tree, hopefully eliminating bottlenecks. We are nearing 4,000 people in the database. Take a look and tell us what you think. 

We have added several branches of various family trees and made many changes to the database itself, but some of the changes/corrections that were submitted were conflicting, so we're going to have the members of those branches work it out. 

We have also had many photographs that need to be uploaded into the family albums, additional stories and writings by Vladimiretsers, and additional research on Vladimirets itself.   We are uploading these items as quickly as we can. (Go to the Web Gallery)  Now that the database is updating correctly, we are moving the photo albums over so that individual photos can be tagged and connected with individuals and families in the database.  There are over 1200 images to be imported, logged, described and tagged, but we're working on it. 

The Vladimirets Landsleit Connection on Facebook is still going strong and attracting people who might never have found the website or their living cousins otherwise.  With the new group format, you can now invite your children, grandchildren and other family members to join.  Not everyone is interested in the dead relatives, but finding live ones is fun! 

Out in the research world, more and more information is being digitized and made available online, including records from the Polish State Archives, and some from the Russian Empire era.  Since Vladimirets was one of the border shtetls (See Vladimirets -- The Little Town That Gets Around) hopefully additional information will come to light. 

The yahrtzeit for Vladimirets was 15 Elul (28 Aug).  As we observe the High Holy Days, we often think of those who have come before us, those we have lost, how much louder the family dinners used to be and how good or bad the cooks were; we take a moment to appreciate our children and the generations yet to come.  We are supposed to look at our own lives, but we can't look at ourselves without seeing those whose lives are intertwined with ours.  For better or worse, our families reflect ourselves, both what we aspire to and what we avoid.  L'Shana Tova!
