About this author


I’m back on genealogy.


I have been spending most of my time the past several days updating the family history book I created for my mother in 1998. At that time I used the Family Tree Maker software book program.

Reading Bleak House was a journey. I have to credit Dickens with weaving a complex story, and painting a detailed picture with his rich language. His critique of the social and legal circumstances of his era also inspire me to think of more noble pur...more

Jaye Viner I once took an anthropology class in college thinking it would be interesting. Let's just say, the class was a failure, but everything I wanted to know, I learned and enjoyed in Guns, Germs and Steel. In the same vein I'm considering reading 1491 and 1493 next. Also, I hadn't heard of Robert Jordan but thanks to your comment I looked him up. Thanks!

Thanks, that's good to know about the anthropology. I definitely need to read it.


Christine Hatfield thanks for being my friend
