"That page stuff (Page-Level Permissions) really works. If you get this message (yes, we did), so does the Contact form."

"It's always good to hear news about our family, and the new site certainly helps. Great job!!! We'll send you anything we want posted and follow the blog by Email. Thank you to everyone involved."
- August 29, 2011

- June 30, 2011

"This is all new to me so I need to take baby steps. Thank you for being so patient answering my questions and sending me information."

"Thanks for putting together the family calendar on Google. This calendar is great and as I was looking at all the birthdays I was wondering something you might know the answer to - just how many family members ARE there???!!"
- September 6, 2010

"Thank you for the web site. This could be totally fun if more family participates."
- August 16, 2010

"Has anybody told you they won't post news on a private web site? 
Maybe we should just rely on comments from those who actually use a website... 
or maybe start a blog just for them."
- August 16, 2010

"As for the site, I think you have done a phenomenal job putting it together.  You might slight yourself in saying that it's just a template, but even in the world of templates, they are worthless until someone enters the information for publication.  I know you have invested countless hours into the preparation of the site and I applaud you.

I will visit the site regularly to keep up with family business.  I think any family member who visits the site one time will quickly see it's value and make their visits regular also.  Let's just hope that they click once.  I cannot think of an easier way to get all of the birthdays, recipes, anniversaries and most importantly, the family news updates than you have provided for them in the site."
- June 23, 2010

"That (news) site is really cool.  I could not figure out how to post to the blog, though." After we all learn more about site sharing and access levels. . . "It is working for me now.  I am getting the 'New Post' button. I think we will use it. Especially if a lot of people are using it, everyone will like to see what everyone else is up to."
- June 17, 2010

"Good job on the new calendar and address book formats. I like them in PDF."

- December, 2008

- May, 2008

"This type connecting process for any family will take time to catch on, and for many to input regularly. Most of us are complete strangers. Thank you for the efforts. We all need an endless supply of the gifts of patience, and time. My children and I will participate whenever possible. Hopefully there will be the ability to incorporate photo rolls and video clips. Watch out Funniest Home Video. Keep up your good work for all of us."
