What's New?

From Jerripedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists all new pages added to the site since 1 January 2022, and significant chanes to existing pages.

It takes time to add links to this page but a determined effort is being made in 2022 to list all new pages, including the many house profiles being added, and also to highlight important changes to existing family trees.

We have deleted the 2021 content of this page and no longer maintain a What was new page because it contained many broken links to outdated content which has been moved or deleted over the years.

If this log of new content seems rather sparse of late, it is partly because of contributors to the website taking a summer break, partly because family tree work has been concentrated on checking and expanding exisiting trees, and partly because of embarking on a major exercise to check through all pages and update the design and content of many of them.

This is the first major revision of the whole site since it was established in 2012. The basic structure of the site is unaffected but a limited number of pages have been deleted or combined with other pages. We have tried to eliminate very short pages whose content is better included in the 'parent' pages. Pages with a single paragraph of text or a single photograph have been absorbed in this way. The use of footnotes on 'parent pages' rather than links to separate pages with supporting information, should greatly improve navigation through the site and enhance the user experience.

The section of the site containing indexes of church family records has been thoroughly revised. When this work was last undertaken in 2017, earlier index pages for each of the 12 parishes were retained, linked from the new pages. This has led to considerable confusion, particularly for users who alight on one of the earlier pages through a browser search, and do not know that there are more recently updated indexes available. We did consider removing all indexes for content which is included in our database, but have decided at this stage to retain the 2017 parish index pages and delete those which date back to 2013.

Although all this work will inevitably have an adverse effect on some users' bookmarked content, and also on links to our site from other websites, we have tried to minimise that impact. It should be stressed that this has affected a very limited number of pages out of the current total of over 12,500 content pages, and only a handful have been deleted, and no pages have been renamed. This is a one-off exercise and once complete, hopefully before the end of this year, we do not envisage making any further changes of this nature. We have updated many pages which have remained unedited for ten years or more, but inevitably some content remains which is now out of date. These pages will be updated when time and resources permit, but anyone in any doubt as to whether information on any particular page might be somewhat 'stale' can click on the history tab at the top of the page to ascertain when the page was last updated

The project to review all the site's pages has now been completed. We have also completed a review of all family trees, and some 300 have been moved into larger trees, or deleted because their content was not considered sufficiently relevant or accurate.
