Happy New Year!

It’s a new year at The Bohm Legacy!

Here is what’s going on.

Ongoing Updates:

  • Older pages are being updated so that their format matches the new pages.
  • Sources and notes are being added to older pages.
  • I am working to make sure all published pages are linked to their parent pages.
  • The surname index is being updated and links added.

New Pages Added:


New Look.. Again

In order to get the pages to display the way I would like, I have changed the theme for the site again. Maintenance will be ongoing over the next couple days, as pages are rearranged and categorized. I have been hard at work on updating the surname index and I am in the process of adding a few new pages. Keep an eye out for more updates in the coming weeks.


I’m still here I promise!

Hey Guys,

I just realized it’s been almost a year since I last published anything to this site. I have recently moved to a new state, so hopefully I will be able to get some new updates up as soon as I get myself all settled in.

Hope you all are enjoying my site, and please let me know if there is anything specific you would like to know about!

Stay Awesome!
