After many years of coasting and focusing on Wikipedia (English & German) my future daughter-in-law, Jaslyn Gilbert, transferred vonbibra.net from my old outdated web site software to a widely used new platform in 2020. This was the major roadblock holding me back. For the next several month, I worked extensively on the interactive map and finally learned how to manipulate the website.
I have added so many things it is hard to begin.
Did major rework of interactive map of Bibra places.
New additions include drone videos of Brennhausen from the air.
Added additional modern photos of Brennhausen. Some of the addition photos in this section don’t have high resolution at this point. If needed from these select photos, contact me.
Completed the digitization of THE VON BIBRA STORY with the addition of last quarter of book.
January – February 2021
Done a lot of work on Scholarship section.
Completed DIE KUNSTDENKMÄLER DES KÖNIGREICHS BAYERN UNTER-FRANKEN XIII. BEZ.-AMT KÖNIGSHOFEN book. Had original here in California from Leonard vB Sutton estate.
Bau- und Kunstdenkmäler Thüringens. STADT MEININGEN UND DIE LANDORTE [HEFT 34] 1909 book. This also was hard but at least a rough OCR was available as a starting place. Translated and reformatted with images relevant sections. This was a lot of work and it included scanning, digitally cleaning up (images and text), and rough OCRing and machine translation. I purchased an original volume which got hung up at Frankfurt airport for over two months. Transferred many of images to Wikipedia Commons.
British Empire Bibras added information and links through site relevant to topic
Hőhn (bei Bibra) Die Burgstelle the fort at Bibra before the Burg
DAS KASTELL BIBRA a big project to preserve a hand typed history of Bibra and primarily the Burg. In German, to OCR and translate would be huge project because of the typed letter quality which is fine for reading but not OCRing. I have in my possession what I assume is one of the few copies (since it is typed) and I wanted to preserve the resource.
Brought back this page “What’s New”
Add information at bottom of Bibra Treppe from Wurzburg book 1915
added page on DIE ALTÄRE IN BIBRA AUS RIEMENSCHNEIDERS WERKSTATT
Contemplated Future Pages (was on old wedsite, restored)
Added images to R von Bibra, Lorenz von Bibra, and Wurzburg (Rathaus)
