Why did google ban this site? What needs fixing?

www.elizabethparcells.com was banned several days ago.  It was started
9 months ago by family members to preserve the legacy of a singing
artist who died three months ago.  I'm trying to figure out why the
site was de-indexed and what to fix.  I don't have a guilty conscience
about anything done on the site.

Any suggestions about what to fix would be appreciated.


The site remains in all the other search engines as before but traffic
on the site is off about 80%.

Other sites who share my site's IP are indexed in google so it's not
about my web hosting server being banned.

The site had very good ranking for the past 9 months.  90% of the
content has been on the site since the middle of January.  Google
indexed it all and visited the site several times a week.

Though the content is the same, I did some reorganizing recently by
combining pages to simplyfy navigation.  I left the smaller pages on
the site for people who'd established links to them and because google
was indexing them.  I put "no index" tags on some of the obsolete
duplicate content but not all of it.  Immediately after that page
rankings dropped dramatically so I took the no index tags off the
duplicate content and linked them back to the site index, trying to get
back to where I was on google without spoiling the improved navigation
for visitors.

There are two very large text pages of correspondance on the site that
a computer might mistake for spam so, after the ban, i put no index
tags on them, just in case.

I worked diligently on all this in part because it comforted our 86
year old father to watch the site statisitcs and see people continuing
to enjoy his daughter's singing (there are adio and video recordings on
the site).

I've read about people writing to google about bans but never read
where there was a response and resolution.

me it looks like it could have at one time. If it did that would be why.

the referring site you mention was used for a week or two 9 months ago
for a small amount of content until the domain name and separate web
site was established.  The content has always been on one website
although the videos are also on youtube.com

thanks for the suggestion
