There is a hope
that's been expressed in you
the hope of seven generations maybe more
and this is the faith
that they invest in you
it's that you'll do one better than was done before
A song lyric from "May i Suggest"
by Susan Werner
One thing I learned from writing e-books is that they are a whole new paradigm; they are essentially life works. They never get completed. They never stop being edited. They are a process and not a product. So this book, like all e-books is a life long work-in-progress. When I die, it becomes an archive or the work of someone else.
This web site/ e-book begins this day, August 5, 2002. The diary began earlier in 2002, and I had done research in the 1970's while an optometry student in Chicago. My father did some work in the late 1940's, and aunts and cousins have also contributed over the years. Let me emphasize, if you are a relative, that it is very important for you to comment if you have something to share. My email is: email@example.com.
I organized this e-book by surname. I may change the format from time to time. You can search the site using the Free Find system below:
