I'd love to do a family blog like that... but I told my family and they couldn't seem to see why snapshots of relatives the world won't know should be posted up for the world to see...

Hi Gledwood,

Well, you see it's like this, I've got a lot of cousins that like me looking for family roots, and this is a good way to share what I learn to my all my family members that have a computer and access to the internet.

Hi Gled,

Um, well, people just didn't smile so much in pictures back then.

My main blog is Lady Jan's home, my home on the internet so to speak.
