    Hello, I am in the process of creating a multi-family webstie and after experimenting with On-line programs like ancestry.com, software like MacFamilyTree, WordPress Plugins, etc… I came across your website. It is exactly what I had envision and is the first one I’ve come across that has accomplished what you have using WordPresss. GREAT JOB! So I hope you don’t mind if I pattern my site after yours. I’ve had TNG working with wordpress in the pass but for some reason I am struggling with it at this stage. What would you charge to go into my site and get TNG up and runing? One question, if you get it set up can I still go back into the file and assign branches to individuals and will those changes automatically be reflected in the site? I have built two rather basic websites so I know just enough to get in over my head. Thank you. Bob Fleege, Ames, IA

    Hi Bob!

    I wondered if you might be able to point me in the right direction.

    I am writing a novel based during the first world war. One of the characters is a young (18 year old) German soldier. I have an idea I’d like to research…I’d like the German soldier to be someone who spent his childhood in the United States and speaks English well enough to assume the identity of a dead American soldier to get out of the war…would you be able/willing to point me in the right direction of where to research information such a reverse immigration back into German states from the US before 1914…?!?! I thought perhaps he might be part of a family that had immigrated to the US, came back to Germany for some reason… and got stuck once war broke out. I’m not sure how realistic that would be or what might motivate a return to the home country in that era…Any books or websites would be helpful if you wouldn’t mind sharing!

    Thanks for your time

    Hi Angie (btw. I am Mark) Off-hand I do not really have any ‘precise’ pointers for you. I recommend you check the libraries here on ManyRoads and the German Help page with its links and tips. Perhaps you will find something helpful there. If you want to discuss funding a precise search, I am happy to do that as well.

    Excellent. I tried to send you an email, but it bounced back. I’d love to discuss!
