Thanks for stopping by…Nov 3rd, 2008 | By Leonard Legends & Legacies | Category: Welcome to the Family!
And welcome, again, my friends… to the show that never ends… and the newly re-designed Leonard Family History Web site. If you’re new here, feel free to poke around. If you’re an old friend, uh, feel free to poke around….
If you look really, really closely, you’ll notice that I’m simply re-writing the post I used to introduce this site more than a year-and-a-half ago. Ahem.
It (the site, that is) features a Leonard family database (still in the old template), a spiffy new design, and… ta-da… this wonderful new blog. If you could bear with me for just a few days, I’ll get everything upgraded, standardized, and working the way it was designed.
Now, you may ask, “What’s a blog?” Blog is short for Web log and it’s simply a Web page where you and I can share family history directly. Sorta like email, except everybody can read it. (Post a Comment on this post, where everyone can read it… or Drop Us a Line for actual email, that comes only to me.)
This is where I’ll post an occasional thought, discovery, or question… and you can let me know what you think. You’ll also find Comments links at the bottom of most Featured Articles… you can add your thoughts to those posts as well.
Here’s how it works… Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the “Comment(s)” link… The blog will ask you for a name (what you’d like us to call you) and a valid email address (which no one but me will see). Once that’s done, you can forget it ever asked. Go ahead, give it a try!
Now, on to the Leonard Family Legends & Legacies… These are a few of the details I’ve collected over the years… about my particular branch of the Leonard family tree. We date back to the Mayflower, moved on to southwestern Pennsylvania for several generations, then off to Ohio and on to virtually every state in the union from there.
All the info is available from the left-hand column, if you’re anxious to dive into the deep end of the pool… or you can stick around the shallow end (right here) to read the featured articles in the right-hand column. Either way, all I ask is credit where credit is due, as I have tried to do when sharing information so freely given to me.
And if you get lost… you can always find your way back to this lovely spot by clicking Home in the left column or the logo in the upper left corner of any page.
I hope you find something of interest at Legends & Legacies, and I hope you’ll let me know if you do.
