Copying Pages and Content. To my knowledge you can do a SAVE AS on your computer and save any of my WEB pages. My software does not prevent that. You may print anything. Selling my material for profit is another matter and without my approval is prohibited. Using material from this WEB site for family history, however, is encouraged.

E-mail Me Link. I am very interested in your comments and corrections.  I want this WEB site to be accurate as well as enjoyable.  You will see this Email link throughout the site.  You can E-mail me directly from it. You can Email me directly from the Home Page. You will also find E-Mail links to other contributors.

External Links. This is exactly as it says. Here you will find a list of external Internet links for you to access. When you go to these you leave my WEB site. No problem. Either browser back or re-enter in your Internet address area. You can, of course, bookmark my site.  

Genealogies. The key is my Genealogies page. Every primary ancestor is linked from that page and each ancestor is linked to its ancestors and descendants. This is a good place to begin a genealogy search. You can also use the SEARCH feature from this and other locations.

HOME Page. If you are in doubt where to go next as you browse this WEB site, click on HOME. This is the front page. Everything can be accessed from there.

Next & Back Buttons. The BACK & NEXT buttons take you one page forward or backward from where you are according to MY PREDETERMINED sequence.  These buttons are active only if there is a predetermined sequence. Do not confuse my BACK & NEXT buttons with the BACK and FORWARD buttons on your Internet browser.  Browser buttons take you back to the previous page YOU visited regardless of how I may have arranged a sequence. 

Page Index.This is the main index and lists all pages in this WEB site, or gives you access to all pages through links. From here you can choose and create your own story sequence or just pick and choose any combination of titles that may interest you.  You can access the index for pictures and the index for progress reports from this page.

Pictures. All pictures can be accessed from the Page Index and from "Picture" links you will see on many pages. You can always go back to the Page Index and access pictures from there, when in doubt. Pictures on the site are not linked in any sequence. They may be linked to narrative, or, in a predetermined sequence.. 

Progress Reports.These are my reports of progress on my research.  You can access all of these, as a group, from the Page Index or the Home Page.  Once at the "Access to All Progress Reports" Index you choose a report date.  Once you are in the reports, they are linked forward and backward.

Recent Changes.I list here major changes to the WEB site, revisions of structure, addition of new family groups and such. Not all changes and revisions are listed. But this is a good place to check for changes.  This list is chronological.

SEARCH Feature. Very simple. Click the link. The link takes you to a new page where the SEARCH feature resides. Just type in a name or word in the box and click the SEARCH button. You will get a list and links to pages within this WEB site that you can choose to see. It works great when searching for family last names. But, the feature works for any word!

WEB Site Software. I use in 2013 and have used since the 2001 birth of this WEB site, Yahoo PageBuilder software. There are no ads on this WEB site. Yahoo PageBuilder is available on line any time from anywhere. This on line software is, in 2013, at least twelve years old and does not compare well with more modern software options also available through Yahoo and other sources. I have considered coverting this WEB site to a newer more modern look. It is the information and pictures that are important, no matter the format. I have also found that conversion of this WEB site is problematic. Meanwhile, please enjoy the material. I intend that this WEB site, in whatever form, continue when I, too, become an ancestor.  

Good Luck and Enjoy Your Tour
