Dear Jan,

First, as a kindness to others, it helps to post in regular typeface not all caps. It makes it extremely difficult to read an all caps post, and it sounds as if you are yelling at us. Just trying to be helpful to you.

Next, I know you are excited about your family, but I noticed you have a lot of information about living people, some still very young. You might want to protect their information. I'm afraid there are bad folks out there who could take this information and use it in some way. I learned that the hard way, when I first started doing posts on genealogy boards. Others took my information and put it on their own web sites, as their research. And someone out there could do more with your information on those current living family members. So be careful. Perhaps you can start a web site for your family by invitation, so you know who belongs to your group, and that's where you can post the personal information on the newest members of your Dickason branch. On regular public boards like genforum, it's fine to list any family who have passed on and farther back, as a frame of reference to find related family members.

Lastly, I noticed you were born in Los Alamos in 1947. How interesting....did your father work there on the Manhattan project? If so, this history could be detailed on your family web site. Good luck.
