What's New (past 30 days)


Technology, or more specifically, PHP v.7.3.1, has rendered my aging WordPress theme not fit for purpose. Therefore, I've redone my Mervilles@Herkimer County and beyond website using Darrin Lythgoe's top rated genealogy software, The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding (TNG), I am no stranger to TNG—I've owned a copy for years and it was integrated with the WordPress theme.

I've transitioned almost all of the information that was contained at the "old site" — you'll have to look for it in new places.

One item that hasn't changed is that the only person a visitor to the site has access to is John H. Merville. In time, I will make other family members available for viewing.
