Our Family History Web Site
was born on March 16, 1999
This is a way for our widely dispersed family to connect, share family information and current events, discuss issues, show pictures, learn about our history, circulate recipes and more. Send anything that you feel the family might like to hear about or look at and I will do my best include it. Don't be shy. Seeing something that you've put on the web is a kick. New material is added from time to time. Stop in and visit your web site when in the neighborhood.
April 29, 2009: NOTE: Password protection was removed from the family web site except for the family tree section. If you already have a user ID (name) and password they will continue to work. Email Leighton Siegel with your name and how you are related if you need a user ID (name) and password.
