Pages like Family - Pt. 2, US Virgin Islands, USVI - Part 2, New York - 1 & New York - 2, Cruises,
Cruises - Pt. 2 and By Air will take you other sections (sub-menus) with more navigation bars.
Some navigation bars are repeated in sub-menus to make it easier for you to go back and forth
between sections. For example, if you go to New York - 1 you will find Home, Cruises, By Air,
US Virgin Islands, Contact Me and Search while on By Air you will find Home, US Virgin Islands,
Cruises, New York 1 and 2, Contact Me and Search.
I will list every page below and let you know who or what can be seen on the page. You can use
this in conjunction with the Index pages to find a person, place or thing. You can click on the
name of the page listed in blue and it will open up a new page. The title of the page will be listed in
green while any explanation between menus will be explained in dark teal. All links are listed at the
end of each entry.
If you know the page you are looking for, you can get to it by typing torrens-nieves.com/page name.
html. Example: torrens-nieves.com/index.html (the Home page) or
torrens-nieves.com/grandparents.html. Four Family pages will have to be written in Spanish.
These pages are Familia 8, 20, 21 and 22. To get to those pages instead of Familyxx.html you
will have to type torrens-nieves.com/Familia8.html, etc. You can also type torrens-nieves.com/xx,
without the .html, and you should be able to get to the page. [Keep in mind that what shows up
as the name in the navigation bar will not be similar to what shows up once you open the page.
Examples: Ma & Family appears as MaFamily.html, Reunion # 1 as Reunion1.html, Family #1 as
Family1.html, Page GGG as PageGGG.html, St. Croix #6 as StCroix6.html, 1986 - A as 1986A.html,
etc. However, the pages with a year like 1979, 1993, etc, and similar pages that have no additional
pages (A, B, C, etc), will appear as 1979.html, 1993.html, etc. The only exception to this rule is
1983. Since I had to use it twice, 1983 under By Air was saved as 1983SK (St. Kitts). 1983 under
Cruises appears as 1983. (Confusing? If it is, look below for page you want, click on the blue
entry or go to www.torrens-nieves.com and look for page you want to view.)]
When you click on a page below (blue letters or numbers) a new page will open. Keep in mind
that if you open more than one page with music/video on it, you will have to stop the music/video
on one page to avoid both songs/videos playing at the same time.
On some pages, I added links to other websites. You will know that you can click on an entry to
get more information by placing cursor over the entry. The arrow will turn to a hand. Listed
below in orange clay are the links found on each page. You will have to go to the actual page with
the link. You will not be able to access the information from the Contents page.

The Family pages are photos of the family and friends.
Though the even pages of Family are listed as Familia, most will show up as familyx.html when
you click on the page. I think 96% of the pages were saved as Family plus the page number but
listed on the navigation bar as Family and Familia. Something similar applies to the St. Croix
pages. Some are listed as Sta. Cruz.
Most of the time when an individual is on a page more than once, I may only show the name once
in the information provided. When listing the names of the individuals by photos, I use a semi-colon
( ; ) to separate the names of the individuals in each photo.
