Introducing

REMARK (14-10-2020): Because of updates in several browsers, a lot of my pages are missing the light-grey column at the right side of the page. I intend to repair the layout in near future, but particularly for my genealogy pages that is a lot of work. And while I take the chance to alter some more things, not all of my pages will look the same for a while. However, they still work as designed.
