a new Page … Anthony Lewis

with 2 comments

I’m trying out a new style and experimenting with the layout…

See if this hint helps to view the page and more easily zoom in… my readers know I am all about the maps…

  1. Let me see if I can articulate the benefits of this new feature? One of the challenges of a Blog is that early entries can become stale as new information is added. I post our Jernigan Y-DNA Project results on two Jernigan surname Facebook pages and I find that when I have updated information I will start a new post, but inevitably members will see the first post and not the subsequent post. I guess I could go in and edit or delete the first post, but I am always afraid of losing the conversation.

    I don’t have a Blog, but this may be the same issue. If I understand correctly, you can keep the file “lewis-final” current and since this post is linked to the “lewsi-final” PDF you will have the current information?

    Bottom line, I like how the information is summarized in a bulletin board style that shows the relevant information, sourcing and conclusions.

    • I agree mostly… I can go in and edit a “Page” and keep it updated. A “Post” usually just is replaced and buried as it is moves backward. I have so lost control that even I am surprised what pops up when I do a “search” using my search button. I have a couple of older Posts I did on this Anthony Lewis that will come up in a search. They will also show up on Google searches people make at random… and they will be directed here (which is one reason I leave the older stuff). In this case I have moved him to a Page because I am beginning to finalize all my info and making conclusions. These Posts are not linked to the Pages… different animals.

      I like these comments because it allows new contributions and an arena to discuss the history and genealogy.
