Still working away

I’m still chugging away on fixing all the cases, doing virtually nothing else honestly, while trying not to throw my back out.

I know some cases are listed as missing in 2018. I know quite a few more are missing the “details of disappearances.” All I can say is that I am working as hard as I can and will fix all that.

I know the alphabetical indexes are a bit wonky still, and I haven’t even really looked at the other two. I have gotten Preston to fix the O index where all the O’Malleys and O’Learys and O’Whatevers were first, because the computer put O’ before Oa. Preston changed that.

The computer has it, reasonably enough, that the last word in a person’s name (except for Jr. or Sr. or II or III) is listed as the surname. Except there are some cases where the person’s last name actually has more than one word, such as if they’re Dutch (Martin van Harten) or Spanish (Rolando Salas Jusino). Those people are listed wrongly. I’m fixing these as I get to them.

    I can’t imagine how much work this all is for you! Hope your back doesn’t give you problems! You are going to need a vacation after all this! Hang in there

    Just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the work you’ve put into the site over the years–I’ve been a regular visitor since 2006 or 2007–and how much work you’re putting in now to fix things after the redesign. Thank you, Meaghan!
