The Tempered Wind, and other site news
04 January 2004 02:00
I put up a link in the library to an electronic version of a book called The Tempered Wind, written by Sidney Alvarus Hanks, a son of Ephraim Hanks, through Thisbe Read. The book is essentially a biography of Thisbe, but also adds a lot of insight into Eph's life and character.
I might as well mention also, that I have in the works a complete overhaul of the site. So far, it has involved a fair amount of programming, but when functional I should have a very powerful Open-Source web-based genealogy system to power the site. All of the current documents and content will still be available, but I'll be able to tie any document, history, or image with any individual, marriage, event, and so forth. Think Rootsweb WorldConnect-style navigation, with the ability to link any sort of document to any individual, marriage, or event. I'll be able to link all the images and such I have here right into my pedigrees.
That will be phase one. Phase two will (hopefully) allow threaded comments to be added by visitors to the site to any individual, marriage, event, or source document, so visitors will be able to discuss any of the site content.
