Hello everyone,

- Just a brief note about additions to our website. I spent a bit of time with a product called Google Earth over the past few weeks. It is a fascinating way to see information on our world, allowing one to see things from a geographical point of view. I added the locations of all the major surnames people to a special Google Earth file. Unfortunately Google Earth cannot run on Mac's.

The instructions to load this surname view file and see it on the world map are located on the webpage listed below (which is the jump off point for information on our common surname information).

If you want to use Google Earth and look at what I have done, but have problems doing so, drop me a line. Google Earth also rivals Mapquest as a way to find a house or a store - so have fun with it to find your way on a vacation.

- I am now paying Geocities a bit every month to keep the site up more often (it times out if too many people use it) as well as eliminate the annoying advertising banner

- Last, so far I have few takers on the genealogy project. If anyone wants to participate, please let me know.

Suggestions, comments, questions appreciated.


All the best,
Glenn
