Update May 21, 2016

May 21, 2016

Work continues in the background on another full update of the ALBA website.  Ray H. continues to work on his Ancestry “Lincoln Washington” page that is providing large amounts of biographical information.  I completed notes from the excellent Puerto Rican book and the Puerto Rican Delo in RGASPI.

So while there does not appear to be much going on, I am still very busy..



Update September 11, 2015

September 12, 2015

I have completed the initial data on the Canadian volunteers.  I am waiting for permission to move forward with adding additional volunteers to the ALBA site.  I am still working on a second set of revisions to the US volunteers that I should have ready to post in the Spring or early Summer.


Update July 19, 2015

July 19, 2015

I am currently working on expanding the scope of research from American volunteers to North American volunteers. Very little will be listed on this site.  Most will show up on ALBA’s site.


Update 8 February 2015 – Blast From the Past

February 8, 2015

On the ALBA Blog we are publishing a number of articles that previously appeared in The Volunteer in the 1980s and early 1990s.  These are articles are by veterans and family members and are for the most part from issues that are not currently online.  I have provided some comments and suggested links to provide additional context.


Update 14 January 2015 – New Year More Revisions

January 15, 2015

Ray H. read through the entire biographical dictionary and provided corrections, additional data and suggestions.  These will improve the overall quality of the ALBA site.  I am continuing to receive additional information and updating the entries as quickly as possible.

Update 3 January 2015

January 4, 2015

Working on catching up on a backlog of material provided to ALBA.  I am also working on a side project to add old articles from the 1980s and early 1990s from The Volunteer. There were numerous great articles written by volunteers and family members that are not easily accessible.

In 2015 there are several upgrades that I plan on making.

* Translate Italian American volunteers biographical sketches from AICVAS

* Add additional photographs

* Continue to revise and improve ALBA volunteer entries

Happy New Year!


Update 12 November 2014 – Worked on adding photos in the “B” vols

November 13, 2014

I had a brief period when I had issues getting photos added to the ALBA website.  So tonight I went back in and updated records where I was unable to add a photo.  Still have about ten to go.

Will work on clearing some back log issues over the next two weeks then start on the Italian records.
