Back in 2005, I had a Genealogy quote generator on this website. I removed it for a couple of different reasons. Now, I thought I’d bring it back. It’s at the top of the any of the pages, and each day, it will usually have a different quote.

After a lot of long hours after my regular job and working through the weekends, I’m trying a new look for I’m happy with the the new look and I hope you find it pleasing as well. Getting the main pages to look similar and work together was a big challenge, considering I have no formal training in web site design and development. I hope you enjoy the new look.
