A new home for our family web pages

Our family web pages, which have been inaccessible for more than a year, are now back on line, and you can see our main family history page at:

http://www.khanya.org.za/famhist1.htm

We have had some family web pages since 1996, long before we started this blog, At first they were hosted by Geocities, but then Geocities was taken over by Yahoo! and killed off. We moved the pages to Bravenet, but that died about a year ago, and when it was clear that there was no hope of it’s being  rescuscitated, we’ve moved the pages to this site.

So if you had links to any of our pages are one of the old sites, please move them to this one!

It will take some time before we get everything working again, and some links are still broken, but the main family history page seems to be working OK for now.

 

Internet problems

Still having problems with Internet access. We bought an extra 2 gig of access till the end of the month, but it meant having a new temporary account and changing all sorts of settings, and in the process some e-mail was lost, as they put in the wrong address. Things seem to be working for now, though, so if you sent any e-mail to which you expected a reply, please resend.

And please, before sending any e-mail with big attachments (over 100Kb), ASK FIRST! Running out of bandwidth causes huge problems.

No web access

I’ve had no access to the Web since last Thursday (15 March), and am posting this from an internet cafe, so there won’t be any new postings or responses to comments here until access is restored, whenever that may be. So if you’ve made a comment on this blog and there has been been no response, that is why.

I’m not sure what the problem is — my normal e-mail still seems to be working for now, though Web mail on Gmail, Yahoo etc is gone. We’ve reported it as a fault, but it could be that we have just run out of bandwidth — kids looking at too many YouTube videos or something. I never look at YouTube myself for precisely this reason, but I think my sons do. If that is the cause, then we’ll have to forbid videos altogether. My wife is looking for a job, and losing Web access for 2 weeks each month makes it difficult.

Back on the Web

I’ve given up Yahoo! as a bad job.

It’s nearly 2 weeks since our Web pages on YahooGeocities became inaccessible, so I’ve decided to move them to Bravenet.

It will take some time to move everything across and ensure that the links work and so on, so please be patient! But it will also make it possible to update some of the material, including the family tree stuff, so in the end it may turn out to be a good thing.

Anyway, please bookmark the new site, and feel free to sign the guest book, or add a comment either here, or there. To add a comment here, just click on “Comments” at the bottom of each entry.
