Family Tree is Back!!!

Category: Genealogy,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 1718

After several months offline, the family tree is back! It’s got a new name, a whole new look and more features than ever. It’s no longer restricted to one small part of the family, it includes all parts of the family now. Some sections are still under construction, but just keep watching because more and more will be added over time.

Some features of interest are that every detail page now has a place for external links where you can see family members’ own personal wesbites, a surname list to give you idea of what names are in my family tree data, a genealogy research resource page and more.

New features will be added

Category: Genealogy,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 0602

I’ve been hard at work on the new family tree website. Just thought I’d take a second to let you know how it’s progressing. I’m done with the basic structure of the site and designed most of the graphics that are required. Now I’m working on importing all of the data from the old website. It’s a slow process but moving along nicely.

I mentioned the other day that I’ll be adding something to recognize how far-reaching the site seems to be becoming with the many Gatti’s etc. who have contacted me after finding the website. I’ll also be adding a new genealogy resources page to attempt to help other find info about their family. I’ll also be adding some more standard genalogy things such as a surname list.

Keep watching this blog for news.

Gattis from around the world

Category: Genealogy,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 1819

You probably already know that I’m working on a brand new family tree website. It will be a big improvement over my previous site. Besides making better use of the technology at hand in order to make the site easier to manage and scale, I’ve also left a lot of room for additional content that I intend to add. It hasn’t launched yet, but I’m working on it finally!

As I work on it and go through all of the existing information that I already have available, I’ve realized something that is pretty amazing. My little website really does reach a world wide audience. I’ve gotten e-mails from so many people who share last nameswith people in my family. They’ve come from all corners of the United States plus countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany just to name a few. I see hits from all around the world in my site logs, but I often think that it’s probably just robots crawling my site. But the big folder of e-mails that I have from around the world tells me otherwise.

Anyway, just sharing my amazement. I’ll address this in a more formal way on the new site. If you’re a distant relative or someone who shares a surname, feel free to drop me a line or just post a comment right here in the blog.

Family Tree Site dusting itself off

Category: Genealogy,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 0112

I’ll warn you right up front that this isn’t a big update, but I just wanted to mention that I have finally began to work on picking up my family tree website up off the ground and dusting it off.

Sometimes in life a person tries to cause you grief and you let them discourage you. Other times a person tries to cause you grief and you turn that negative energy right around and turn it into creative energy.

That being said, a whole new family tree website is in its earliest stages of development. It’s not even in the form of HTML yet, but it’s basic brainstorming fills almost half of a notebook. I’ll keep you posted as progress continues.

I will make one promise though… it will be bigger and better than ever before.

Olympic Games and Genealogy Merge

Category: Genealogy,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 0014

As the Winter Olymics in Torino get ready to get underway, I have to point out that there’s a connection between the games and my genealogy research.

The Gatti family is originally from Casrozo, Italy. Casorzo is a tiny village very near to Torino where the games are being held. I haven’t resarched it, but I’m sure there are some distant cousins of mine helping out with the games. 🙂 Visit my family tree site for more info about my family’s history. (It’s a little sparse now due to some family problems, but a great new one is coming soon.)

Gatti Family Tree Offline

Category: Genealogy,Life,Site Updates — Posted by Michael at 2322

You may have noticed that The Gatti Family Tree website is currently offline. I’m sorry to dissapoint anyone who was looking for it. I did not want to take it down but some family issues forced me to.

While there is no estimated time until its return, it will soon be back and better than ever. Keep watching my site for updates.

In the meantime if you are someone who’s doing genealogy research and are looking for any info on the Gatti, Pannazzolo, Monzeglio, Martinetti families please get in touch with me because I’d love to talk to you and compare info.
