I hope to See Fans of History, at the “Terrace Heritage Day Celebration”,
Terrace Arena Banquet Room, Feb 17th, 2018, from 1 - 4 pm
BC wide Theme for 2018 “Heritage Stands The Test of Time”
Will do my best, to promote this little History Site there!

We are just about finished transferring the old Site, over to this New Server and Modern Format.
Please bear with us in these final few steps.

I know I need to add a couple other Pages, here and there.
You will still see the odd FIXME icon, indicating we still need to do some additions there.
But most of the old site has now been moved, after more than a year of work!

There are still lots of “People” Genealogy and Bio Sections that need to be moved,
From the History Pages they are now on,
to the Special “People” Section, with a link back to the page they were on previous.
This makes the history pages a little shorter, and more readable,
After that the person can be linked to whatever page his-her history appears on.
This will be an on-going job in the future, not a top priority right now.

In the meantime the Old html Site is fully active.http://www.gent-family.com
But please note- the Old Site has not been updated in months now.
All New additions, and any Corrections, are in this new site.

It is a work in progress, as there was over 1000 pages to transfer!!

Estimated completion so far:


This new layout will offer many new features, it will be easier to navigate and easier for us to update.
Some examples of the new features:

  • The site is fully “Responsive” which means it should work well on phones, tablets or desktops
  • In the top toolbar you can click this icon: to increase the the width of the content (ie. remove the whitespace on either side of this page.
  • A lot of information will be converted into searchable/sort-able tables. See Coal Mine Index as an example
  • Note top right you will see a seach box. I think it is the best feature of the new format. It works fast, and is very accurate. Give that a try for sure!
  • New Search Bar, Top of Each Page in this Site
  • You can use the indexes to the right or above as a starting point or click here for a complete  Index

During the transition anywhere you see a red link like this –> Some link it means that this section has not been made yet (basically its a placeholder, so we can keep track of what needs to be moved)
