I am working on two big projects for the blog. One is to make the Links tab a lot more user friendly. You won’t see many changes to it as I am doing it in a separate blog post to avoid messing up the Links tab as I go through and clean it up. I am adding a number of new links that run from companies I didn’t include originally, apps, blogs, and sites that offer other auxiliary DNA services. For example, I came across a company that has a mix of free and paid DNA apps; they accept free raw data transfers from most of the major DNA companies, or you can order directly through the website. Out of just over 100 apps, 70 are free and 33 are paid. It’s a South Korean company and near as I can tell, it probably wouldn’t cost that much to purchase all of the paid apps.
For the Links project, it means going through hundreds of links and see which ones I haven’t added, which ones are no longer working from the list I haven’t added yet, and doing a host of looking for websites that may have changed URLs.
The other big project is about a World War I veteran who earned the Medal of Honor almost 100 years ago (October 6, 1918 to be precise).
A third post I have on the back burner is one I started working on back in late 2013. It’s a lot of research as I’m looking for 70+ individuals who are scattered in cemeteries across the country.
