Why this site exists:
Welcome to the temporary replacement for the AWOL WorldConnect database Lorna Henderson
I made the mistake of trying to refresh the database with some new data and it has hung at the "loading" stage for several days now even after several new attempts.
The response to my inquiry to RootsWeb is below.
It bears an amazing similarity to the response received when enquiring about the unavailability of my Guestbook (which resulted in a permanent replacement
linked above in the menu.)
I am however prepared to give them the benefit of the doubt for WorldConnect as Ancestry benefits somewhat more from the data we contribute there.
Although this version does not have all the quick view pedigree/descendant charts for each person, you should be able to navigate reasonably easily around using:
- the search facility from the menu
- the quick pedigree view to the left of each name labelled as Family Explorer
- clicking on any name in the parents/family sections
LornaHen takes you to the home page for all my web pages/connected data.
This Site is this temporary site, as are the
Search and Surname Index.
Lorna's Links, Guestbook and GenBlog take you back to my other pages.
As per the WorldConnect database this replaces, please ask me about my sources as only those for people published in my family tree online (BigBrother
) have been checked for publication purposes.
WorldConnect's response to my query:
