08-12-2018: New search engine on top of the page, which will correspond to the new pages of genealogy and exisiting histories at Maltagenealogy.com more changes to occure over the coming week. The existing search engine will still refer to the old website. Links will be a minimal and over due course on working on each family tree, links will be re-established. Same as the nobility stories, histories will also become clearer with links. 
Maltagenealogy.com is downsizing to help everyone to be able to navigate through the pages. Many changes have occured where family trees were simplier now are in massive family trees being the focus point now. Just over 140 trees will feature the lineages of thousands of families and can clearly become publishable in the future.
We also have limited nobility titles to reigning monarchs. Those whom have acquired Chivalric orders must be listed in World Orders of Knighthood and Merit by Guy Stair Sainty and Rafe Heydel-Mankoo, ISBN-13: 978-0971196674.
05-12-2018: Further changes to the main page, genealogies and histories over the next week. Please be patient as the changes will make it possible to be able search and locate data at a much easier pace. At the moment, links in the listings are not all 100%. Many will disappear to only main pages and the rest will be only found via the new search engine coming very soon.
30-11-2018: Website changes are occuring earlier then expected. Hopefully all will be completed within the week. A new menu for genealogy will be completed during this period and a new update will noted when everything is completed.
16-11-2018: The Website is in the middle of integration of its vast data and changes will hopefully occur in the early months of 2019. Till then, please save your emails for updates, new work or corrections. The website will remain the same until the new changes are online and fully functioning.
18-09-2018: Various changes will occur on maltagenealogy.com including deletion of several areas such as SMOM, Russian Maltese Nobility, Announcements and pages will move in due course to a new URL. New pages of genealogy will not have links to corresponding pages, unless it is feeding off a main page. This is to help bring the website into a manageable site dealing with genealogy and related pages. The process has already started and will continue over 2019. Updates will notified. The aim now is to brings many pages into large family trees and reduce the size of the site. Eventually a New GENEALOGY LIST will be updated closer to completion of this transitition. 
Maltagenealogy.com has for nearly 20 years grown so massively out of control and changes have occured over the last five years to stream line the site. The next changes will hopefully bring it to a new dimension on the anniversary of its 20th year online.
