The June Owens' Outpost is up.

I've finally decided to re-name this blog "Ancestories" because it more closely describes what I'd like to see posted here. Its new web address is:

If you have any family stories you would like to share, send them to me by e-mail at asowens@ix.netcom.com and I will post them. If you think you would like to post them yourself, let me know, and I will add you to the blog member list.

Stories add life to the birth-marriage-death outlines constructed by facts, and help us see our families as real people in the times in which they lived. When distant relations share stories of common ancestors, a more complete picture of each personality emerges, and we gain a deeper understanding of who we are.
