I'll be happy to participate in discussion on this topic which will focus on the Social Context of our ancestors and our genealogy – the history, cultural and natural environments that can become the subjects of visits. Being a retired person, I will generally take that viewpoint in this Forum. Others are welcome, OF COURSE, but that will be our starting point. I hope to get my column started in May 2012. I look forward to this opportunity for us all. Thanks, administrators, for creating this great venue. Bill
