2010 A Big Year

This has been a big year for our family projects. Our family has discussed and wished for web sites for at least ten years. Finally, in 2010, we've launched our first web designs. As we all look forward to 2011, our web team continues welcoming family suggestions and feedback for making improvements. Based on comments to the team this year, we plan to:
  1. Advance opportunities to increase "3rd generation" interactions 
  2. Clearly distinguish "restricted" vs "public" content
  3. Respect traditional privacy preferences while extending outreach with general announcement broadcasts
Thank you to everyone who patiently endured the E-newsletter phase, and gave time to develop and check our web sites' content. Let's stay connected, nurture our family relationships, and wisely use the tools at our disposal. Happy New Year!
