Read This First

I know that some of my family and friends are not familiar with this type of Web page (called a 'blog', short for 'Web log') so here is a brief explanation.

New articles ('posts') appear at the top, with older posts below. When the page fills up, you can click a link at the bottom to see older posts.

The right column includes a list of Keywords. Click a keyword to gather together one or more articles on that topic. (This will be very useful later, when there are many surnames, places and other keywords.) To go back to the main page, click the 'Home' tab.

At the end of each post there is either a Comments link or a 'Post a Comment' box. I sincerely hope that you will use Comments to add extra details, or suggest a source or Web site, or correct my mistakes, or ask me a question. Your comment will be emailed directly to me, and I will reply as soon as possible.

You can (if you wish) have new posts sent to you by email. In the box labelled 'Follow By Email', type your email address. Click 'Submit' and follow the on-screen instructions. You will receive an email asking you to confirm your subscription by clicking a link (you must be connected to the Internet when you click). You will see a confirmation screen. Then just sit back and wait for the email to arrive when I write something new! (If you prefer not to receive emails, just bookmark this page and visit it whenever you wish.)
