Family Tree Project

I could never imagine when starting this Family Tree Project just how involved things were to become.

Robbin and I have been working on this for the past couple of weeks, and there's still quite a bit of work yet to accomplish.

I went on-line to see if there are already Family Tree templates we could use (ie:, and others). They're all pretty much a straight line to direct ancestors.

Of course, with our group (and the fact that we are combining the O'Flaherty and Albrant trees) we wanted a way to include everyone -- step mothers, step fathers, step brothers and sisters, 2nd marriages, etc. -- and not just by strict "blood lines".

Fortunately our son Matthew was able to set us up with Visio, a drafting program from Microsoft, that allows us to create exactly what we want. Ergo, the tree shown here is the current status of what we have (click on it for a bigger image then click the "+" sign for an even bigger image).

The Blog Has Been Busy!

For some (unexplained) reason, the K6CU website has been drawing a lot of visitors lately. Just this past week there have been 178 visitors, from all over the world, from Tahiti to Turkey!

As you can see on the map (at right), the little dots show the various areas where the last 100 visitors have clicked on to my Blog.

Hmmm... would a $1 "donation" per visit be out of line?
