One of the reasons I set up this site and its predecessor was to share some of the family documents and photographs that have accumulated in my home over the years. Some were passed down through several generations to my mother and then to me, and some others I have been fortunate to have had passed on to me by thoughtful cousins and others.
I wanted to find a way to preserve some of these items for future generations, and it seemed to me that a website may not be the best way to do that. So I decided to put together a book that contains copies or the text of some of the more interesting items, along with a basic family history.
As of June 2019, the book is complete, and I am posting it here for anyone who is interested. The book is in PDF format and is free to download for personal use. On July 13, 2019, I sent the book to a printing company to have a hardbound version produced. That version will be available for sale to anyone who wants a copy. I hope it will be available by late July. I will provide further information here as that aspect of the project develops.
If anyone sees errors in the book or has other comments, please let me know. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.Here is the link to download the PDF version of the book.
