HellenicGenealogyGeek Upgrade Complete

Hi everyone

I am finally finished with the update to the HellenicGenealogyGeek.com website. As usual, this project took longer than expected. I feel like it was similar to starting a project to fix something in the kitchen, you know, the kind of project that should take 10 minutes, but ends up taking all day!

I have added to the basic Hellenic Genealogy Geek information by including links to outside sources of information and books that you may find helpful with your research.

I have moved the Hellenic Genealogy Geek blog to Google's eblogger. Recent blog entries include - Maps for Greece & Turkey; Masculine Given Names (Greek & English); Surnames (Greek & English); Funeral Register (Guest Books); Gregorian vs. Julian Calendar; Greek Handwriting Samples; Greek Military Enlistment Rolls; Obituaries
