If you don't send items in it's hard to come up with enough items to put out an issue. 

I'll try to put some thing out every other month, so the next issue should be in August.

From the inbox.....

Hi Dan!

Just took a look at your site and noticed the pictures I sent you were up - hey thanks!! They look ~really~ good for scans of a photocopy!

My grandfather is doing better now. Now in a rehabilitation physical therapy facility for the time being. Again, I thank you and all our relatives for their thoughtfulness and kindness in sending good wishes for a speedy recovery.

Heading off to Europe next week. Hope to get to Brenets, Neuchatel, Switzerland to see where Emily Bersot came from. She married Charles Willis, son of  John Hiram, son of Jonathan Anthony. Wish I had more information on others of the ancestors to 'dig up' while I'm there.

Appreciate all your hard work and dedication to this site!

Tangling The Branches of a Family Tree

"Proof that a man can be his own grandfather: There was a widow and her daughter-in-law and a man and his son. The widow married the son, and the daughter the old man. The widow was therefore mother to her husband's father, consequently, grandmother to her own husband. They had a son, to whom she was great-grandmother. Now, as the son of a great-grandmother must be either a grandfather or a great-uncle, this boy was therefore his own grandfather."

Looking for.....

Hello Daniell,

My name is Deborah Lee Keeney, I was searching thru the net and came across your name when trying to find some info in the name Keeney. I am looking for the Keeney family in Florida, around the Lakeland area. I live in Pittsburgh Pa and am related to them on my fathers side. Could you possibly be from there. I do not know any Keeneys. My father and mother divorced when I was young and he moved there. Let me know if you could possibly be related.

Thank You Debbie

After attending the funeral of my Grandfather Oliver Arthur Keeney 'Art'(1917-1999), I would like to enquire about my family's ancestry.
My grandfather O. Arthur, was one of five children;
Billy (last alive), Mike, 'Buster', Vern, and Olga.
These were the children of Joseph Keeney, and Gladys.
My father tells me that gr. grandfather Josephs' father was also Joseph (maybe) which was the a son of Jonathan Keeney (namesake for 'Keeney Pass' near Ontario Oregon). Any leads to information would be appreciated.
Jerry Keeney (of Omak, WA - now in TX)
