You might be wondering just who the heck are we anyway?
And how and why did we do all of this!
This data is managed by Becky
Bonner and Josephine Lindsay Bass
I live in Oklahoma City, OK and mom lives in Cape Canaveral,
FL. Mom is a great help and either of us may answer your query. I get about
150 emails a week - so if you have sent me something and not heard from
me, please be patient. Sometimes it takes me hours to answer just one of
these requests. I developed the Bulletin Board just so you can post your
Query without waiting for me get to it - AND to draw attention to special
folks you are searching. We are delighted to hear from you and get new
leads - and we know you are anxious to hear from us - so we are trying
our very best be timely. This is definitely a labor of love - much need
for one of the top ten most frequent surname in genealogy research. We update our online database as often as possible but is less frequent now that it is so large, requiring more than 9 hours just to transfer.
Lots of folks ask what genealogy software we use. There are a number of very fine packages available. You should try demos of your top picks before you decide. We used Reunion for Windows to manage our database your many years - and loved it. Available for Mac (older versions were for Windows platforms). We have upgraded to the newer MS Windows version now owned by Sierra called Generations. I use Gene Stark's Ged2Html program to produce the Web pages from our gedcoms. You really MUST visit his site where he maintains a a centralized index of sites to help you find relatives. You can contribute your own Harrison data to our Repository by submitting preferably a gedcom or a detailed clear report of your family with references. You can attach this to an email to me or my mom (see mailto links above or contact us to make other arrangements). We will cite you as one of the sources for every record we add or annotate from your information. We try NOT to include living individuals and are concentrating on Harrisons born before 1900. Don't forget to add places, dates, spouses, and spouses parents if known as it might be the clue we are looking for to suggest a link for you.
In regard to web editing... I use a variety of packages, mostly freeware or shareware including Homesite, DreamWeaver, FlexEd, Microsoft Internet Assisant for Word, or Wordpad (just a plain old vanilla text editor) at the moment. Visit the Java Botique for Instructions for adding Applets to your Web page.
While your there, we very much appreciate your vote for our site!
