V. 2 #10: New on Olive Tree!
SITE MAP READY!
As promised in the last newsletter, I finished a Site Map for Olive
Tree. It doesn't list every single page (over 1,700 - W A Y too many
to list!) or every single database (over 750 - W A Y too many) but it
does give you a bit of a better feel for how my site is set up.
I've tried to show the various sections of my site, and what you'll
find there. Some sections show specific databases, most don't. You'll
have to use the Site Map to orient yourself and to get as close to
the records you need as possible. Each area of the Site Map has a
direct link to that section or page.
Remember, the key to success on Olive Tree pages is to let each page
load completely, then slowly scroll down the page, reading as you go.
You won't want to miss my links to other sites and their databases,
so be sure you visit all pages in the section of interest to you.
Have fun and remember, if it's on Olive Tree or a sister site, it is
I hope this helps those who have been asking me for a Site Map for
some months now. :-)
NEW ENGLAND SHIPS ONLINE
I've been working very hard on a new set of ships passenger lists for
Olive Tree Genealogy. It's taking a long time (it's a big job!) so I
decided to put it online partially finished, so researchers can get
started while the rest is being put together.
Thanks to the help of a wonderful volunteer, Laura Freeman, I have
been able to add 33 ships passenger lists to my "Ships to New England
1620-1640" section at
The above URL contains a long list of all ships known to have sailed
between 1620 and 1640 -- to New England, Virginia (which was a catch
all phrase for other locations), Bermuda and Barbadoes.
It might be easier to start your search at Ships to New England at
Scroll down til you see the starting year 1620. Each passenger list
with my Olive Tree button beside it, is online, and free to all. Just
click on the ship name to getto the list of passengers. Remember,
scroll down to see the names.
Here is a list of direct URLs to these new ships online. You can
