So, you may have noticed that I never got very far on the presidential project. I apologize for that. When I started to do the research I was over whelmed with sites that had already completed the family trees for all of the presidents. It didn't seem to make sense to just replicate that. There are also sites that have the complete family tree for Clinton and Trump. But the real truth is, I got side tracked with real life. I have been working and lost track of time. But summer is ending and we have a long autumn and winter ahead of us to explore genealogical subjects. I would love to hear from some of you about what kind of things you are looking for on a site like mine.
I will be posting some new material soon, so keep reading and thank you for your ongoing support and interest in the site.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.James
