New Website Look and Updated Search Features

Gente di Mare Over the last few months I’ve been busy trying to update both the Gente di Mare Website and Italian Surname Database.  A major makeover was desperately needed.   It’s been a bit slow going to say the least but it’s finally coming together!

The site is now being broken down into Categories and an index has been added to the home page which I’ll be adding to as new content becomes live.  Due to the amount of files I have *buried* in the site this will take a while to get all linked.

The Italian Surname Database has also been updated to include a new search feature which now allows viewers to search not only by surname but by town, province and region.  It also allows partial searches which is helpful for displaying alternate name spellings.  Please note:  You can not search by email addresses or contributor names  so this should cut down on spam.  A widget has also been added to the site with real time posts linked to the Italian Surname Database Blog for easier viewing.

Hopefully you like the new features. As always I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the new look and any suggestions you might.  To add your surname to the database please continue to use the feedback form.  Names should be enter in to following format using normal text:

Surname
Town
Province
Region
Your Name
Your Email

Please refrain for using all capital or lowercase letters.  Thanks and Happy Searching!

Free access to the 1911 census!

In an email I received this morning:

View the 1911 census for free on findmypast.co.uk

View the 1911 census for free on findmypast.co.uk

We know what a brilliant resource the 1911 census is for any family historian, so we’re giving it to you for free!

Until 18 November 2012, view a 1911 census transcript for free on findmypast.co.uk – this usually costs 10 credits.

We’ve also drastically reduced the cost of viewing an original 1911 census image – you’ll pay just 5 credits instead of 30.

There’s more good news: we always strive to offer our customers value for money, so when this offer ends on 18 November, we’ll permanently reduce the price of viewing the 1911 census to 5 credits for a transcription and 5 credits for an original image.
