Well, after tinkering with TribalPages.com for a bit, I’ve reached the conclusion that they provide a much nicer family tree (sans adoption records, I guess) than phpGedView, when considering the total maintenance. The online editing feature works very well and for $2 a month, it’s hard to beat. If you visit http://genealogy.marstella.net, you’ll automatically be redirected to http://marstellafamily.tribalpages.com. That was the easiest way to do things at this point. There’s an option to request access, as I really don’t want the scavengers taking data from the system that might be invalid. I will probably open it up a bit after I upload some of the current data that I have written scribbled in various places, but it will probably be around Christmas.
Finally, I’ve taken a few moments to add some genealogy content to http://genealogy.marstella.net. Unfortunately, it’s not the most recent file; the most recent is currently in storage from our move and will probably be a few weeks before it’s posted. The current content is missing about 50 extended family persons, no direct ancestors or descendants for Henry Garret Hall, Sr., or William Marstella.
Anyone wishing to have an account will need to request one as the old database was lost when marstella.com was killed.
I finally had a chance to start getting the genealogy system (phpgedview) back online. The system is now in place, although anyone with a user ID will need to contact me to have their logins restored. The site is located at http://genealogy.marstella.net.
The genealogy system is (or at least will be again) configured to allow visitors to see records of non-living persons. However, full user access is required to download gedcom files and see records for living persons.
Hopefully, the system will be fully online within the next 2 days…
marstella.com perished a few months ago due to a failure on my part to renew the domain. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to re-acquire it as the company that bought it hasn’t been willing to contact me. Apparently the domain is worth thousands to them…
