I have spent the last week re-working the look and feel of the several database collections found here at Caperton.info. If you go to the Marriages listing for example you will find the look more closely matches the rest of the website now. I have also begun scanning and linking copies of documents from the Caperton.info paper archives and linking them to the database. A good example of this is, again, in the marriage listings. On the far right of the last six listings you will notice there is a grey and black block that denotes an image link. Click on that link and a larger image of the document the record is derived from will appear. There are now about 175 original documents and photos and over 450 extracted records already on the site. While this is a start, I hold over 1000 pages of documents in my own personal collection that I will be scanning and posting in the coming months. If you would like to contribute to this, please email me and we can figure out the best way to get your information online.

Book Project

I am continuing forward with the Book Project. I have about 19% of the pages transcribed. Once I have completed the transcription process, I will begin editing and updating. You can keep current on this project by clicking on the BMC Book II link on the Book Project Main page

DNA Project

I have added a Descendant Chart to the DNA Project. This chart shows the descent of those that hve submitted samples to the DNA Project. As promised you can only see detailed information on the DNA Project if you register on this site. So what are you waiting for?


I am getting ready to email out the First Caperton.info newsletter in probably 5 years. If you would like to receive a copy in your email box you just need to register as everyone that is signed up will receive one. I am hoping to get one out each quarter.
