Many family members have joined

It's been a busy week with the family tree. Many family members are joining and passing it on to others. People are updating their information and adding photos of events. It is a wonderful thing to see unfold.

If you're reading this and would like to join us, please send me an email. Let me know who your siblings, parents, and grandparents so that I can invite you to the correct space on the family tree.

The Geni Tree is growing

Well, a number of people are signing up at Geni to at least help out with the simplest part of the family tree. Getting the names, birthdays, and parents attached to the correct spots on the tree is challenging. Getting people to help you AND provide you with a photo of themselves is incredible!

I'm excited about this because it's simple, easy, and I hope to see a good amount of portraits on the family tree in the up coming weeks.

Facebook has been a big help in leaping into this project.

If you'd like to see the tree up close and filled in with names, please send me an email so I can invite you to the system. Please include your full name, your siblings and your parent names. This will help make sure that I send you the correct profile.

I'd like to say thank you to those that I was able to speak to the other day to fill in some of the holes of the current family tree. I have finally gotten the impetus to do this, and so I have a few updates for the blog.

I finally reinstalled them. I had taken them down at the beginning of the project because I was having a hard time figuring out how to make the modifications I wanted to make easily and simply. Over the past 2 years I've learned how to code php, or at least how to modify two different forum softwares, phpbb and vbulletin.

Online Family Tree
The past 2 years has seen the advent of some online collaborative tools from wikis to project systems. One of the most pertinent ones for my use is an online family tree system that allows for members of the family to contribute and correct the family tree, and a system for tracking and approving those changes.

I also completed the request of the TV researcher in Manila. I gave permission to use the Roces Family site for the broadcast. In exchange, they will credit the website and the two contributors, Brian Roces and Sassy Mae C. Sumulong, and provide a copy of the show for the Roces Family Website Archives.
