Re-Indexing Database PDF Print E-mail

Sometime late tonight, I will be re-indexing the database. Keep your fingers crossed that I don't do something silly and lose the whole thing. Yes, I've taken three backups this afternoon, but knowing my luck, I'll kill it, anyway.

UPDATE (8:30): Only one little (and thankfully manageable) hiccup thus far. Some links will be a little off or broken for another hour or two, but everything should be resolved this evening. The coffee's brewing ;)

UPDATE (11:30): It's looking like the re-indexing is complete. If you notice a broken link, please do let me know.

How I Married My Cousin PDF Print E-mail

It turns out that my husband's grandfather is the 34 x great grandson of Charlemagne, and my grandmother is the 37 x great granddaughter of Charlemagne, which makes us 36th cousins 3 times removed.

Naturally, the evidence for relationships beyond 9-12 generations is limited, at best, and should be treated as family lore or hearsay, probably. Still, it is amusing to draw the lines and see.

I find that if you can get a Western European ancestor back to the late 1500s or early 1600s, you can then (usually) find a mythical connection back to one of the royal lines in Europe.

I receive a lot of requests for information, and I am happy to respond to them all. Sometimes the requests are more than I can answer in a few minutes of email reply. While I will continue to respond to all requests as I can get to them, and I will continue to answer where I can do so quickly, I have decided to offer more thorough responses as a service.

I've noticed a few duplicates in the database. I'm working to merge the duplicated people. If you spot a duplicate, please don't hesitate to let me know! Thanks.

Update (23 Aug 2010): I think I've gotten them all now. Do let me know if you spot anything amiss.
