General stuff on my end

Some unexpected — but awesome — things have happened as a result of the Longreads article that came out a few days ago. I don’t want to say anything more because nothing may come of it.

I’m working on hammering out the dents etc. on the new website format. Right now, my priority is re-adding the cases that mysteriously vanished off the face of the earth. Then I will focus on re-adding the details of disappearance to cases where that information vanished off the face of the earth. This is a pain and is taking awhile but I shall prevail.

I have a new Executed Today entry, one I had agonized over for quite awhile and am very proud of. The reason being that the executed person was almost certainly transgender, but this all happened in the 1940s before most people knew transgender was a thing. I wanted to do right by her/him without playing down the seriousness of the crime.

Anyway, back to work.

    I came across a reference to NamUs and thee Charley Project in the most recent edition of Genealogy Gems, published by the Genealogy Staff from the Allen County Library. But then it is in your neck of the woods.

      That’s the library I use, actually.

      I had them print me out a copy today.

    The Executed Today entry = quite an interesting read. Made me a little sad, too.
