I have just pushed up a new and streamlined version of Caperton.info! Though the look is the same I have streamlined the number of pages and mouse clicks it takes to get to where you want to go! Now on the Main Family History page, you can click on the quick jump link and go straight to the page you want without having to first go down the page to the explanation paragraph. I have also added several new pages and 50 grants. There are now 17 research sketches, 99 copies of photos and original documents and 439 extracted records available at Caperton.info.

I am still working on a subscription page so that visitors can subscribe to receive notification of site updates as well as a quarterly Caperton.info newsletter. This sould be done soon. Then I have more photos, and over 30 more original documents from my personal collection to scan and get onto the Web Site!

I have a new CD Book available on the CD Books page ( www.caperton.info/cdbooks.html ) The Annals of Fort Lee is a history of the military post Fort Lee, erected in 1788 and eventually the site of Charleston, West Virginia. There is a running account of "New River" Hugh Caperton's 1793 tour of duty on the Kanawha and Elk Rivers. This book is a great "Backgrounder" to give you a flavor of the times Hugh Caperton (B-1), the eldest son of our John Caperton, lived in. 119 pages.

I have updated the site search engine. I did not realize you had to re-run the search engine each time you updated a site page. Which is proof you are never too old to learn! Thanks to Steve for the heads up on this issue!

Also please be aware that the photographs and their titles are not included in the search from the main page. To search the photographs you need to go to the photogallery and use the search option within the gallery itself. This is because the photogallery pages are now "created on the fly" which means they do not exist until a visitor requests them. The old photogallery could be searched because the pages were static pages that were always present.
