Hey, a quick note: someone help Uncle Dale find this site on the internet. Evidently he has not seen it ... (gulp). Uncle Dale got me "hooked" into these reunion plans and now I find he has not even seen theoldfamily.com site.
I uploaded 2001 reunion pictures (check out what you missed if you did not make it that year.) Actually you can find almost 10 years of our reunion pictures on winkflash.com (user name = old password = oldold).
I also plan to post the "History and Genealogy of the OLD Family". Embedding a document is somewhat problematic with this host server, but I'll figure it out. Stay "tuned" for more blogs and interesting facts on our family.
I hope we all have a Happy Thanksgiving Day. Edna and I are ready and plan to trim the Xmas tree after Macy's parade. Check back after the holiday... and don't forget to carry on all those holiday family traditions.
Somehow I managed to re-download the pictures from this years Reunion. I'm still learning my way through this web page program. It's pretty simple, you just have to know what "buttons" to push!! You can find the slide-show button on the upper left of the large photo. Try it, it's works great. Yea!
You can also "save as" the photo by "right clicking" on it. Holding the clicker arrow over the single photos and "clicking" once (only once) the photo will enlarge. This stuff is fun...take care everyone and please, sign-in for me.
Xmas family photo cards can be posted on the photo page. Just email them to me and I will post them.
No one has "signed in" and no one has left any comments on our 2011 Reunion plans. I'll keep checking for them ... thanks everyone, we are getting lots of "hits" on theoldfamily.com site.
Spent the weekend with leaves. Raking and getting them out to the curb. I'm glad that job is done for the season !
On those mystery photos, it looks like they might be my grandparents on my mother's side, the O'Connell's (also known as Connell's). A visit to my sister Ann Lee and she told me how much the fellow in the picture looks like my Uncle Bus. Indeed he looks like him. Also one lady looks like she might be our great, great Aunt Nan. Ann is going to do further research on these photos.

I posted three tintype photos on the "photo page". Can anyone tell me who are these folks? I am pretty sure they are part of our Old Family.

This is my first entry after "Publishing" our web page. There are a few tweaks to be made, but I'm happy with the outcome. The best websites are updated on a regular basis, so keep checking in and "seeing what's new". Keep in mind that mistakes happen (spelling, etc.) so be gentle with my "OLD" bones and I'll try to correct them.
Finally, lets remember that the main purpose of this site is to encourage everyone (all of our families) to attend our 2011 Family Reunion!!
Thanks and Love to our Families ... Jimmy
