I Blame Hepzibah next

No, she didn’t really reach out of her grave, grab me by the throat,
and call me a turkey for neglecting my amazing family heritage.
But the outcome is very much as if she had.

It’s quite a story. And my children and theirs and theirs really need to know it.
Maybe you’ll enjoy it, too, even if we’re not kin.
Since 1998, when I met Granny Hepzibah, I’ve invested a lot of time and love
in this effort to put selected highlights of our family history
where you and they will be able to find them. And I’m vastly grateful to you
who’ve helped with content and organizational improvements.

I’ve collected, borrowed, and composed this material over twenty years or so, visiting a number of places where our ancestors are remembered as founders and early settlers, and writing my own illustrated life history. I’ve divided it into sections. Each section can stand alone as a hypertext treatment of its topic in words and images.

Significant people, places, and story elements appear throughout the collection, and I’ve tried to pull them together in indexes, so that you can follow stories of interest across section boundaries.
