Have posted the beginnings of the Library page here: http://chris-ross.net/libmain.html. Still have more to put on there, and will figure out how to format it into categories later.
Have from time to time over the last year made various updates. Most recently I have updated and expanded the Links page. I am presently working on a "Library" feature to make various historical reference resources I have acquired available.
I have removed the link Genealogy Launch site for the "printer friendly travel version" that I used to maintain along with the site. I have not updated it in years and have decided not to bother with it anymore. My site is about as printer friendly anyway as it is largely text based.
About a month ago, my old laptop with which I created this site on was put out to pasture. Since purchasing a new one (with Microsoft Office, so hopefully my spelling will get better), I have made approximately 100 different additions to the site; far too many to list. I still have many to go, and will be working on them off and on for the next couple of weeks. One project of note will be 1925 Kansas Census transcriptions.
