Congratulations to all of you, Craig, Donna, Rebecca, Penelope (oops I mean Denise), Vickie, George, Denise, Sheri, Caroline, and most of all fM, for a wonderful surprise. It has obviously taken so much time, effort, thought, blood, sweat, tears etc. and there is so much to show for it. I'm off to have a bit better of a read than the quick flick through my impatience would permit the first time around. All the best for a long and fruitful future - this is such an excellent idea.
Regards, Brett

Wow, what a fabulous creation! Kudos to all who made it happen! I especially enjoyed the article about the 1930 Census, and will be going back through all of the ancestors' files to take a new look at that year with a newly-critical eye. :)

Great job!

I'm a little late to the party, but since I was lucky enough to see the preview you already know I think it's simply brilliant. But I wanted to shout it in public: this is one of the most creative and original uses of the web I've seen in a long time. And I'm not just saying that because you think I'm funny enough to write a humor column! I was intrigued by your idea from the start, but seeing the finished product is amazing. I hope we can continue to work on these projects for a long time, my friend. Thank you so much.

I know I am *really* late, but I just wanted to congratulate you fM and all of your contributors for a very fine endeavor, indeed. I especially appreciate the abillity to download your magazine as a pdf file since my online time is limited. Great job, and thank you!
