I try to leave notes in the various entries in Reunion... But, hard to guess which Grandkid, cousin will show an interest...

Early 90s, I ended up finding my Mom's side Homestead in Montana, that led to other tales, places, so for a couple years I made up a multi-page newsletter, sent it to all known family members, not a single replay... But it did stir interest, led to a couple reunions that I know of... maybe triggered some interest...

A lot of the folks I met back then have passed, tried to make contact with their kids, not happening.. We all have local family interests, hard to make those longer bridges...
