Bones Are Forever Genealogy

A family history of the ancestors of William Donald Vest III and Samantha Isabel (Rivera) Vest

The research and information included herein is the result of over a decade of research time (as time permitted me). My main repository has been Ancestry and I synced that information into FTM (Family Tree Maker). While it is true that you can sync that information, it doesn't do the best job. I can add custom "events" to either one. Birth, Marriage, Death are the usual events. But I can create and title my own.

Those events do not get transferred over properly. The same can be said with other information. In addition, I transferred my GEDCOM file (the entirety of my genealogical information) to this site and again, it doesn't always transfer correctly. Different companies create different code and they cannot predict what we, the consumer, is/are/or will create as custom events or other information and many other issues.

I tell you all that to tell you this... It's a mess!!!

After I transferred the data to this database I found a plethora of errors and none of my images loaded. So feel free to look around. Just be aware that you WILL find errors. But know I am working on it. With nearly 4,000 people in this database, it's going to take me a while.

I can say that Simply Hosting (the company that handels our web hosting) and the members of the TNG* community have got to be tired of me asking questions. This has been an experience and a half getting things set up and they have been incredibly patient with my frustrations.

He has created the most detailed, and by far, the most customizable genealogy software around. If you can code, or hire someone who can, you can do nearly everything and anything with his software.

So what you see now is the beginning of our site. It will take time to learn and develop. I look forward to our adventure!
