The Register is a series of linked pages, which may be likened to a tree. The first page (the Index page), is the trunk, and the links on the page are the branches. Each branch can lead to other branches. There are over 800 so called "branches" on the Register.
To connect to these branches, click on the "hypertext" links. For example:
Something Page - Connects to some page
This link is not activated, but if it were, click your mouse over the highlighted text, "Something Page". Your browser would take you there. If you wish to return, either use the links at the bottom of each page, or use your browser's back button.
Your name and email address is required. It is suggested that you use all capitals for surnames, as it can help the reader to find surnames he has information or an interest in. Please include enough information on the person/family you are inquiring about, i.e. full name, spouse's name, location of birth/settlement, Birth/Death years if known, and children's names if known, plus any additional information you might think would help.
When done click on "Submit Query" and wait for the server to come back to you. Do not click twice, be patient. When it does, it will show you your query, and give you the option of going to the guestbook to look at your query. If you go back and do not see your query, do not re-enter, simply press your browser's reload button. This will read a fresh copy of the guestbook file from the server, and this will include your query.
To Read the guestbook or queries, from the main page click on "Read our current Guestbook/Queries!". You will be shown the current guestbook file, including all entries. Periodically, when the guestbook file gets very long, I archive the guestbook, and you will find the past guestbook archives below the main guestbook. To read them, simply click on their link.
Documents presented on the Register are proofread carefully, but your primary resource should always be the source document, the name, and location of each is presented somewhere on each page.
Bear in mind that much of the family lineage information on the Register is the work of amateur genealogists, and may contain errors. This is not meant to be an affront to any of our submitters, most files are extremely well documented, but it is safest to use them as guides only, and by all means use the link to the submitter of each family file, they will be very happy to hear from you!
If you have historical documents that you feel would be of use to others, I would be thrilled to put them on-line! If you have spare time, and would like to type up information for us, I would be forever indebted.
Remember, I am only one person, and my time is very limited, I would very much appreciate any help you can give. In the months since the Register went online, I have spent from 4 to 10 hours daily entering information and administering this page, and it is funded entirely by myself. Why? Because so many people have helped me in all facets of life through the years, and this is my way of giving back!
Your kind comments since the Register went online Jan. 29 1997, have truly been appreciated, and makes all the work worth while! Our users are the best people in the world, and the page would not be what it is today, without them!
Note: This file may be minimized and kept in the Win95 taskbar while going through the other pages, and may be referred to at any time it is needed. To do this click on the flat line icon at the top right hand of the mini screen. To bring it back up, in Windows 95, click on its name in the taskbar, and in Windows 3.x, use Alt-Tab to bring it back. Keep Alt-Tabbing till you come to its name, then release.
