A Website for Descendants of
John Vibert and Mary Neell
married February 26, 1705/6 in Saybrook Connecticut
This month I am continuing to add a new group of about 1800 documents which have been accumulating since I converted the website in September, 2011. The 302 documents added this month cover 67 families - the last part of generation 7 and the beginning of generation 8. The list below shows which families have new documents this month. Please also note the information in the Known Problems section. As always, on this site each family is considered to be headed by the Vib-related person, regardless of sex and all documents are tied to this person.
Also, any changes made to the data in my master file have been uploaded into this site's data base as well as included in the PDF book version of the Descendants of John Vibert and Mary Neell which can be accessed using the last button to the left of this section.
I expect that addition of this new group of documents to the site will be complete in two more months, followed by another four to six months to to process documents I have collected this year. Once they have all been added, I hope to be able to start scanning some new items from my paper files and adding those as well. So I hope you will all stop back from time to time to check out my progress and perhaps to send along some new data.

Additional Information About this Site
The new site generates pages "on the fly" from a database which contains every person I have data about. It protects the privacy of living persons by not displaying personal data anyone who has no date of death and is less than 110 years old. All persons deemed to be living are shown simply as Privatized + surname with no other data.
The database itself contains the latest information I have entered into my own FamilyTreeMaker database, updated monthly. Also, some new information on female branches will be available. These include the ancestry of Dorcas Dix, wife of James Vibert (generation 2), Lovina Wrisley, wife of Timothy Vibert (generation 4), Nancy Loomis, wife of Oliver Vibert (generation 5), Margaret Fallow, wife of Watson Vibert (generation 6), Marjorie R. Monteith, wife of Robert K. Vibert (generation 7) and Eileen M. Hawkes, wife of John Vibert (generation 8). Unfortunately, I have little information on Mary Neell, wife of John Vibert (generation 1) and Betty (--?--), wife of John Vibert (generation 3) at this time and no information on their ancestry.

In addition, the new site design includes full indexing and searching for all names - a major feature that was missing from the old site. Other features of the site include the ability for each visitor to bookmark persons they return to often, better display of sources and notes, built-in ancestor and descendant charts and improved support of printing.
A popular feature of the old site is also available in the new one but in a slightly different form. All documents relating to each descendant of John Vibert and Mary Neell can be found displayed in the lower part of their page where they can be opened and downloaded.
Finally, in addition to providing a Contact Us direct email facility on the new home page, the new site has a great Suggest feature on the Person pages which allows you to email me information about that person. It automatically generates a subject heading of "Proposed Change: [name of person] and embeds specific information in the body of the message to guide me back to exactly the page you were looking at.
I will be making some additional changes to the new site in the near future to correct problems.
There is still at least one remaining problem with the privatization of individuals who may still be living. The program that loads the data does not seem to be keeping good track of the order of children in families that contain privatized persons. Since no actual data is being displayed for these people, it is a minor, though somewhat annoying, problem that I hope you will overlook. As always though, please let me know if you spot any remaining persons who are not being privatized correctly.
Another known problems is duplication of facts and notes for certain individuals. This problem has largely been eliminated but there are still a few duplicated facts and notes I have not yet cleaned up. Please be patient - these will gradually be eliminated over time.
There are also a few adjustments I need to make to the color scheme but I just have not had time to make them. They have no effect on the site functionality.
Finally, some of the menu functions on the new home page are not working yet - there are no entries under Most Wanted and Reports yet, the Cemeteries link is not yet connected to my cemetery pictures and the Dates and Anniversaries link is working, but very slow. The What's New link is also working but it is not providing any useful information since all the data is considered new by the database. If you spot any other problems, please let me know.
Still available here:
The PDF book version of the Descendants of John Vibert and Mary Neell is still available from this screen as before and will continue to be updated each month until it is moved to the new site. The photo galleries of cemetery pictures are also available here for now but will not be updated. Eventually all the pictures will be moved to the new site as well.
Thanks for all of your interest and support over the past seven years. I hope that the new site will continue to be of use to you all in the future. For those of you who have contributed material, a special thanks. For those who have not, please consider doing so.
And now over to the new:
Please note that once you are on the new home page, you will need to search for a name to get started. You can start by searching for your ancestor and then moving up and down the tree by clicking on the links (as in the old site) or you can start at the top by typing in John Vibert. I recommend that you click the Bookmark button when you are looking at pages you plan to return to - this will allow you to go directly to those pages in the future without searching. Enjoy!
