Hello herd, welcome to the blog. This may be your first visit or perhaps you are one of the mob who purposefully arrive to view what’s new. If so, what is wrong with you???!!!
Starting February 28, 2014 I began a series of entries about my immediate and extended family. The purpose is to allow any kinfolk who care to grab the pics I post and to, perhaps, read something about the relatives they did not know about.
Our family has not been big about recording family history. I know so little about the family but I am doing what I can before I pass on to whatever is passed on to… if anything. Some of the plains Indians told of a “Great Mystery” that was considered to be a Creator entity. I like that name for whatever was a Creator though I am an open-minded agnostic unable to grasp any type of belief system.
What can not be debated is that us humans do exist on this planet and are here for a brief period and then… poof… gone.
WordPress is a chronological blog with the newest entries seen first then as you scroll down the older then oldest entries appear. I did not plan this series of family history blog entries… it has been created as I went along. To see the first entry of the series here is where the exciting adventure through the past starts:
Collected Pictures for Posterity
To add an appearance of professionalism that does not exist within my convoluted life here is a list of the several entries so far:
More of the family history
Pictures and History
Disgruntled Old Coot Looking at the Past
The Past Leaps Onto the Blog
Time for the newest exploration into the past that encompasses what I know of the family history.
For the proverbial record… all of the pictures in this series are private and not for any type of commercial or for-profit use. Family and friends are welcomed to copy for personal use, use in blogs, all that stuff the common folks do without the intention to wrest wealth from others… that beloved-to-many profit that is the prophet to so many humans infesting the planet.
A charity that is trying to amass donations to assist folks in need can use the picture(s) if doing so assists others while shunning personal profit.
Schools, research papers, adding to historical writing to expand human knowledge… well, do the typical routine of citing sources, etc.
Use common sense, folks. If anything in this series assists folks in general without primarily being a profit-maker for an individual… let your conscience be your guide.
