Description of "Old" Van Buren County

March 2010 Admin note: The above was on a Geocites personal page. Yahoo discontinued Geocites sometime back.

I wish to apologize, I am behind in my posting of contributions. The weather has been brutal and inflames some physical problems I have. I have not felt well. In addition, I fell on the ice and tore a muscle in the back of my leg high up, well, suffice it to say, I can not sit for very long to work at the computer. And I lost my two best friends in two weeks. I had known them for over 30 years, they were 56 and 58 years old and left families. Of late my thoughts have been on them. I am making every effort to catch up. I thank you ALL for your understanding.

July 27, 2009
I updated Butter Creek Cemetery. Added a link to off site, shows the only and new David McAlister Grave Stone.
Update on the new search engine. Yes it is working fine, but is only returning search results that Googles Spider Bots already archived. My latest additions (like the photos submitted by Jo Ann B. a few days ago) are not as yet being returned via a search. I am still researching the Web Tools on google. I tried to get it to "index" the whole web page, but I have no reports on our VBC Google Account that this has been done. I do know, in their TOS, if we use google, no other search engines may be used and I think there are one or two, on the Obits page etc.. Not sure if this is the reason I can not get it to re-index the entire site. (Index or indexing = spider bots crawling every page and following every link on every page, these are archived by google and thus when someone searches on the VBC site, it comes right up in the results.) Google Bots spider just about every page on the Internet. Obviously, I Will keep working on this.
also I seemed to have solved the IE Explorer problem I did have, I had to use a different code for the search engine, is all.
Opps, updated the Queries page(s), we now have 2008 archived. Sorry about that. Also removed spam from the quest book.

July 26 2009

supplemental
The new search engine seems to be working fine after some tinkering. Let me know if you have any problems. July 26, 2009
Weve been experiencing a lot of problems with the old (free to use) "Freefind dot com" search engine. It dropped over a thousand pages per the reports I receive every other day. I tried Atomz dot com, and that reported this web site WAS TOO LARGE and would only spider (web bot crawler) a portion unless I paid a fee. These are the free versions. (We have in excess of 3,400 pages) I am afraid the Free stuff is getting less and less. So I am experimenting with Google.

I myself have problems with Internet Explorer and this new google search engine, (This has been fixed) .

After reading this, just hit your back button to return to the Main Page

I think, you will all like this much more powerful search engine.

I thank you for your understanding and always feel free to email me feed back!

As this year comes to an end I want to say thank you to all of you who have contributed to this site this year. You've added SO much that I know has been helpful to others. You notice that nothing was added in December....it's the first month since I've had the site that nothing was added in a month...usually we are running over with new information. Don't wait for someone else to add something, add something yourself. I know there is much more out there to share. Have a good new year and I look forward to hearing from you. Lynn

July 2006

We are in need of more Wills and Family Bible records. If you have any you could share we would appreciate it.

I have posted A "Very" Rough draft of info in a Pope Co. abstract. There was so much really good genealogy info in it. It was from just a city lot and house in the present time. Even if it's only for a house and lot....the old information in it will go back to a much larger parcel of land all the way to the original land grant owner. Please look and see if you have one from VB Co. that you might want to share the 1800's information from. You can either type the info into an e-mail or just scan it and send it to me and I'll type it.
Notice how many names there are!!!

11/14/05 - I have been working on making links from the bride and groom marriage indexes to any pictures on the picture page that would be them as a couple. If I have missed any, please let me know. Also have been working on links from the cemetery page to each person's picture if we have one on the picture page. Need your help there also. Thanks, Lynn

Note from Lynn....As we end each month I always wonder if we'll have anything new to put up in the next month and the reseachers of Van Buren Co continue to amaze me with their sharing spirit. Thanks so much everyone, you make it a pleasure to work on this site!!
