McCartney's Journeys

What's New on the Site

McCartney's Journeys will, on occasion, be modified: page content may be changed; pages may be added for new topics; other pages removed. It is an on-going process to keep the site relevant.

It seems strange to say "keep the site relevant" when genealogy is about family history and history doesn't change. However, new data can be discovered and reported, new research techniques can be developed and new articles can be written. So, it is possible to "keep the site relevant".

This page, on the other hand, will contain a list of the most recent changes, additions and/or deletions to the site. The changes will be shown in reverse chronological order: the newest at the top of the page and the oldest at the bottom.
