This genealogy web site uses 'inline frames' or 'iframes'. Each page is dynamically generated by the server which executes PHP server-side instructions to compile the data pages you see. Until you click on a name in the left pane the information page does not exist but is, in reponse, generated with the information available for the selected person which is contained in a server database. This database has been generated by the owner of this site from an uploaded basic Gedcom (UTF-8 encoded) file that most reputable genealogy programs can produce.

There are 7849 individuals from 3694 families on this site so generating the required information in this way greatly reduces the number of individual files to firstly upload and then maintain on the server. Those included here are direct line antecedants, their spouses and siblings. Also a few related people known to have been immigrants to Australia are included.

When you move the cursor over a Birth, Baptism, Death or Burial and if the source of that information is recorded, the source is displayed at the bottom of the pane. This shows the author of the source and the title of the source if any. This may be useful should further research be needed.

On this display you can click on the parents names to go back in the tree or on the children of the couple to go forward. If a dagger symbol is after the child's birth date the child is known to have died in infancy and no further issue follows. When traversing forward, eventually you may discover a "Living person" whose name is suppressed as are the birth details. A person under 100 years of age is suppressed automatically unless it is known they have died. Between the primary person and the spouse are buttons that allow you to quickly go back to the previous page viewed or to move ahead to the next page if there is one.

The search box (top left side) after clicking on it allows you to type in a surname that you are looking for. In fact after you type the first letter, and it matches, the index list scrolls up to the matching letter. A subsequent entered letter scrolls the list if it is still a match. There are four small buttons containing German umlaut vowels. Clicking on these will insert the umlaut at the cursor position. For instance if you are searching for Dörr you would type d followed by clicking the key for ö and all those names scroll into view. A line below indicates a match or no match together with an alarm sound.

As mentioned above this site uses iframes. Frames based web sites usually have one major drawback. If the person in which you have an interest came from a search engine such as Google™ you do not receive all the pages that make up the site. You will only see the 'orphaned' page with nowhere to go! You will be missing the crucial left side navigation pane. On this site and with your browser having Javascripts enabled, the page will now automatically generate the required navigation panes. This is a major improvement on a frames based web site!
