Follow Brouwer Genealogy on Google+

A companion page has been created for the Brouwer Genealogy blog on Google+. If you have a Google+ account you can now follow Brouwer Genealogy at the Brouwer Genealogy Google+ Page.

Every new post made to this blog will appear in the "stream" on the Google+ page as soon as it is posted. In addition I will add links to other pages, articles, photos, etc., that I find online relating to genealogy in general. I also may periodically go back in time and feature a post from the past by "sharing" it to the Google+ page. Scroll through the "stream" and see if there is anything of further interest to you. Come back often because more will be added.

Technology with regards to the way things are viewed online is changing, and changing pretty quickly and I think for the better. Many long standing websites are adapting and changing with it, and are attempting to provide a cleaner and easier visual experience for their readers. An example is the New York Times which just recently changed the appearance of it's website. By the way, the New York Times has a Google+ page too.

The main Brouwer Genealogy blog page has also been cleaned up. The long scroll line of links is gone from the right column and they have largely been condensed into the "Pages" category you see there in their place. The number of blogs appearing on the main page at any one time has been reduced to six. This makes for a shorter page and quicker loading. The blog archive, as well as "top ten posts," will still appear on the right. The number of categories appearing under "Labels" has been reduced. What you see there are the ones I use the most for locating specific posts from the past. The Search Engine has been changed to one that works (however, it only searches this site, and does not search linked sites as the previous one did, when it worked).
