Blog update

Niagara: Table Rock in Winter by François Régis Gignoux, painted circa 1847 – US Senate collections

Dear All;

Beginning today (1/20/21), this blog will largely be private, and its private sections will be available only to bona fide relatives (near/far) who would like to have access to its contents. Current followers who have an email address that includes surnames I recognize will be sent a password/invitation automatically. If you are a relative and you don’t get a password/invitation, please email me via chipsoff at protonmail dot com. Remind me who you are, how we are related, and which surname(s) interest you.

I can’t guarantee how often I will be posting. Now that my mother has passed, I feel a special obligation to organize and sort through immediate family history materials while I am able, and I have quite a lot of them to go through. And, like everyone else, I am navigating through these uncertain times. But I can tell you that from here on in, anything I post will be family-history only; no more “Florida Fridays,” for example. And, perhaps, the privacy factor will encourage more people to leave comments or even want to do guest posts.

If you contributed a guest post in the past, I have left your materials public and will leave them that way unless you advise otherwise.

Internet search results will continue to show links to my content. The box below shows what people will see if they want/need to access it. So distant/near family will be able to contact me in the future to request the ability to view the blog’s contents.

Sincere thanks to all others, including fellow bloggers—family historians, photographers, gardeners, bakers, cooks, jam-makers, etc., who have followed and supported this blog. Some of you have been with me since I started this a decade ago. It’s been a great way to connect with extended family, meet new people, and learn interesting, and oft times, unexpected things.

I will continue to follow the blogs I have been following and will be available at the email address above should anyone need to contact me.

Best wishes,
Gail

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
