Site history

This site exists since 2002, and got revamped in 2023. Below is a bit of history.

7 Jan 2023 It took a long time for this update. Due to family and work I did not have time the last 16 years to perform much research. Luckily, others continued the research (see here). Since 2020 (partly due to COVID-19 which provided me some extra available time to get everything started again), I have been able to take time again to research the family tree. And now I finally got around to also update the website. The update became a major one, and resulted in a completely new website. The many unmatched branches have now been matched, and the family tree is now not limited to the Wulgaert name alone, but also holds a pedigree from the point of view of my daughters. So, that means not only a Wulgaert-paternal-only lineage view, but also all maternal ancestors, and as I started from my daughters, it means I also included the paternal and maternal ancestors of my wife. The family tree now holds +6000 individuals.
26 Nov 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 Jan 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!!
02 Jan 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 Aug 2003 Three new unmatched branches have been added: Joanna Wulgaert born ca 1620, Judocus Wulgaert born ca 1600 and L├łopoldine Wulgaert born ca 1850. The branches of Joanne Wulgaert (born ca 1695) and Richard Wulgaert were updated.
04 Apr 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 Mar 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 Mar 2003 In my recent research I came across 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 Mar 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 Mar 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.

07 Aug 2002 In my recent research I came accross some new Wulgaert's, they have been added in the "Unmatched Branches" page (have been added: the families of Richard, Alfred Gustaaf, Alida, Alain, Paulina and Clarisse Leonie). I also took the time to finalise my "Links" page.
25 Apr 2002 A major update of the genealogy pages; a new structure with a home page, a new geographic page, adding the data out of my GEDCOM file on the website.
14 Apr 2002 The wulgaert.tk domain links to the genealogy pages + the origins of the Wulgaert name are added as well as an geographic overview of Oost-Vlaanderen and the places featuring in the family tree.
