Since previous members of the committee had become
inactive I am happy to report that Barbara A. Dahl, coauthor of Ostrander
Family Vital Records, has joined the committee. Barbara brings much
energy and expertise to the updates project.
To date the Committee has completed entering
the updates from about one third of 2000 thru 2001 and all of 2002 thru
2004. The number of persons included in the database exceeds 1,707 with
over 6,516 details. We shall soon begin entering updates from 2005 and
hope to be current by the end of the year. However some further development
will be necessary if any new publications are planned.
