Every 2-4 months I update my family tree on Rootsweb. Today the new GEDCOM uploaded to RootsWeb had 14,525 people and 4,762 families. This is a small increase on the upload a couple of months ago, but also includes the research I have done since the last upload. Recent research has involved checking NZ electoral rolls, finding cemetery details, checking NZ BDM details, plus addition of some details provided by other family researchers.
Often I find details of people who I think others will be interested in, but the information does not fit into the design of my website – Chris Korte’s New Zealand Genealogy Project. I now add these details to Rootsweb page for the person concerned. Two added in the update today were:
- Obituary for Carl Wilhelm ALVE (1849-1910) following contact with Terry Alve and confirmation of family details. Terry contacted me regarding my post on Catherine Alve (nee Wallace), and has confirmed details mentioned in that posting.
- Details for William Alexander WALLACE (1899-1994). William was Superintendent at Awarua Radio from 1947 to 1954, New Zealand’s main receiving and transmitting coast radio station. William Alexander was the youngest brother of Catherine Alve (nee Wallace), and information from Terry Alve allowed me to find the details added to the tree.
