Alban Rushbrooke 1820-1895

Biographical details for Alban Rushbrooke (1820-1895) do not fit the structure of my project website, where I aim to put details of people who immigrated to New Zealand, and their descendants. Alban lived in Norfolk, England, all his life.

Alban’s second son Ernest Edwin Rushbrooke (1859-1940) immigrated to New Zealand, and his descendants form part of my family tree. Ernest was my great grandfather. Ernest’s biographical details are shown on my project site.

I decided that the best way to share information on Alban, and other relatives like him, was to include details on the Rootsweb WorldConnect site. Notes about individuals can be displayed on the site.

I will now start adding biographical details, where I have them, for people displayed in the family tree.

The technical details: biographical details are displayed in a blue box on the Rootsweb WorldConnect site.  To create this box, the notes for an individual are put between <div id=”ged”> and </div> in my genealogy software (Brothers Keeper). “ged” is defined in the css file I use on the Rootsweb WorldConnect site (see below).  The notes are then exported from Brothers Keeper to a GEDCOM file that is uploaded to RootsWeb.
