Sharing is the name of the game. I can share best by bringing you to my site.
I am interested in bringing new cousins to my private web site located with My Family.com. The site is loaded with Family pictures, Family Stories, History, Family recipes and space for your family information as well. There are already cousins there, and just about all have shared their information for you to gleen through. All will help you get through the site, all you have to do is ask. You can contact any of them and you can invite others you think might be interested. Hope to see you there, but I need your email address so I can send you a personal invite. Sorry, I guess that's the way they do things. I, too. would like it to be open for any and all who happen to find us.
