Update History

26/11/2006 A second daughter, a lot work, a lot of travelling. Unfortunately, I did not have to much time this year to perform research or update the website. Hope 2007 will be better :-).
07/01/2006 Updates to multiple branches + adding some photos to the unmatched branches page. The updates were based on online research and based on input from Jo Van Wymeren-Heraly and Chris Sarnowski. Thanks Chris & Jo!!
13/09/2004 Birth of Sam, daughter of Tim Wulgaert!
28/08/2004 Small correction of a typo in the data of Christoffel Wulgaert - Thank you for noticing this Ivo!
10/03/2004 Additional family news (upcoming birth) + a correction (Koen, the web master thanks his loyal and attentive public ;-).
02/01/2004 Thanks to Mike Hammen, I was able to complete and link some unmatched branches (previously indicated as the branches of Dominic, Cecelia, Charles, Edward and Alvina Wulgaert). This resulted in a new large unmatched branch (cf. Branch of Pierre Wulgaert) of 6 generations starting in Kluizen, Oost-Vlaanderen (Belgium) and ending in Wisconsin, US. Thank you very much for your contribution Mike!
30/08/2003 Three new unmatched branches have been added: Joanna Wulgaert born ca 1620, Judocus Wulgaert born ca 1600 and Léopoldine Wulgaert born ca 1850. The branches of Joanne Wulgaert (born ca 1695) and Richard Wulgaert were updated.
04/04/2003 The recent adjustments in the unmatched branches are now also present in the full genealogy overview. The full genealogy now contains 267 persons. The error messages that were present in that overview are also cleared out now (apparently there exist some buffer problems in the GreatFamily software).
29/03/2003 Thanks to Philippe Bruggeman (via Patrick Tuytschaever) I was able to add more information in the unmatched branch of Jean (aka Joannes) Wulgaert. Thank you Patrick and Philippe!
09/03/2003 In my recent research I came accross some new information; in the "Unmatched Branches" the family of Zacharius Wulgaert (ca 1605) has been added and other branches have been completed (Edward F Wulgaert, Alain Wulgaert).
06/03/2003 Unmatched branches that up to now were not present yet in my genealogy database have been added. As such their details are now also visible on the Full Genealogy page, extending that overview from 204 to 259 persons.
02/03/2003 On GenLias (www.genlias.nl), an online database containing a great part of the Dutch historic archives I found a reference to Peter Johannes de Mullewie, son of Petronella Theresia Wulgaert. The data has been added in the unmatched branches section.
