Since January 2010 I've put in a lot of hours typing up and supplementing

I've been worried that I could lose all that work, as well as all the extra genealogical data I've gathered. My hard drive was already wiped out once by lightning and one could always be burgled, or the PC could pick up a virus or something. Hanli suggested that I store the stuff on the Internet - so that's what this page is all about. As I modify the documents, I'll replace them. It'll be a work in progress.
