  • I encourage you to sign-up for FamilySearch Family Tree, where I have uploaded genealogy, photos, stories and sources. That way, if you have additional research, old family photos and stories, you can share it with the entire family by uploading it there. is part of the GSU (Genealogical Society of Utah), which has been gathering genealogy and making it available to the public since 1894. This site is totally free and accessible to everyone, and it is as close to a permanent repository as you are likely to find. As you browse your part of the family tree, look for photos and stories that I have linked to the "person" pages on the site. (You may need to add 2 or 3 generations to connect yourself with the records of deceased people there, but it is easily done. Records of living people can only be seen by the person who created them. If you need help, call the toll-free number 1-866-406-1830 for Canada and USA and ask for help with Family Tree.) 
  • ... I think I am just about finished with trying to maintain a personal website. They tend to vanish without any warning at the whim of the webhost. I have hopes for x10 but it is probably my 9th or 10th webhost! If I vanish again, look for my postings on
