Web Cards Updated

I have just updated the web family cards under the Genealogy link. I've refined my method of identifying people who can be listed safely without listing any still-living people. As a result, you'll find more people than have been listed before.

Please check your own family line. If you know that I can safely list more ancestors on your line, you can help me do so by sending me dates of death, even if only approximate, for those people who are not listed.

Thanks for electing me! I quit!

And now that I have your attention ....

The title of this article was inspired by a former real-life governor who is undecidedly not running for President. The sentiment behind it is decidedly different.

You have elected me president of the OFS. Unlike the organization's first president, Jo-Anne Moriarty, who served in that position for nearly 20 years, I will not be serving nearly that long. I'll state right now that I intend to be a one-term president. My reasons are both selfish and selfless.

Reunion Photos

I have put online some photos from the International Reunion.
