So far, we have many who like to see what is on the family blog, but few who want to post. We found on the Penrose blog that after people get started they get into the spirit of the thing and the blog becomes a self-sustaining project that everyone enjoys reading and participating in. I will post photos and events from the Volney and Pearl Black side of our family ancestors, and from the early years of the Blood children. I will probably duplicate a few of the photos from the Russell and Minnie Blood blog just so our "family tree" will be self-contained on this blog, although you can access all of that material on the Penrose Mornings blog. The Penrose blog has just been amazing. Once reluctant beginners got started digging up material and posting it, the momentum just kept going. I hope that same result is what will happen on this one.
Please be patient while I get this new one organized. I will transfer as much of the material from the other D & V blog as I can as soon as I can. For now, I will send invites to participate in this blog to those for whom I have email addresses. Please respond so I know you're on there. If you need help, call. Please provide better email addresses if necessary, as well as other email addresses for other family members. I have great hopes to match the success of the Penrose blog, but it will take everyone's help and support.
