Revision of Our Family Lore site

The original purpose of this site was to provide some historical information about now-deceased family members in the hope of finding distant family members who were also interested in family history.

That purpose has pretty much been fulfilled, and I thank those who found this site and contacted me, that we might share information and insights. I've really enjoyed all that!

But now it is time to take down the family history information. Too many concerns about privacy -- too late, perhaps, since a lot of the data from this site was copied (without permission) and then posted in various databases.

Instead, I'm happy to provide the information that I have to those relatives -- however distant -- who share an interest. I'll be in touch.

For now, I'm keeping some of the links about other interests, with plans to expand the selection some in the months and years to come.

If you want to contact me about any of the topics here, or about family history information, please feel free to email me.
