Why the Brouwer Genealogy Blog

In July of 2008 I created the Brouwer Genealogy website. The site was created using a Mac Book and Apple's i-Web application, while Apple's Mobile Me service provided the web hosting for the site. Just within the past few weeks Apple notified all of it's Mobile Me account users that they would be discontinuing the service and although some features of Mobile Me will be transferable to Apple's new i-Cloud service, some features, such as i-Web publishing and Blogs would not be transferred. The Mobile Me service will be terminated in June 2012, and therefore at that time the Brouwer Genealogy website will no longer exist. This cancellation of the Mobile Me service will have no impact on the Brouwer Genealogy Database website which is hosted by RootsWeb's free pages.

One feature of the Brouwer Genealogy website was the Updates page (now disabled). This page, which was in Blog format, was used to alert any and all interested of updates to the Brouwer Genealogy Database website and to additions and corrections made to the Brouwer Genealogy website. This Blog, that you are currently reading, will from here on out, take over that function. As of now I will no longer be posting updates to the Brouwer Genealogy website Updates page. All future updates, additions and corrections will be announced here. At the time that the Brouwer Genealogy website is terminated, all info found on that site's Updates page will be lost. It will not be transferred to or saved on any other website.

Information and links found on the other pages of the Brouwer Genealogy website will be relocated either at the Brouwer Genealogy Database website or on this Blog page. As info is moved and links are created I will post notification here on this Blog page.
