I've set up a mailbox specific to the site, and am now ready to go public in my efforts to find other STRONG family members. There's a nationwide radio show that I listen to every week day, and I will be approaching them and asking for their assistance in locating other people who might be interested in knowing about the project. David Mearns has given me permission to mention his group on air should they decide to help. Once I see if they will assist me in this, I'll let you all know more, and give you the particulars. I'm very nervous about this, the thought of going on air. In past jobs I've done a few live TV spots, so it can't be that different, right? And they could say no, but I have a feeling they won't. Either way, I'll keep you all posted on my success or failure in this. So who was it that said, "failure is not an option"?
Welcome to the blog! I'm a life long Kentuckian with a degree in Anthropology, thus a nice background in research, thanks to some great profs at the University of Kentucky. Family and historical research are what float my boat, and this project has been the heart of it for a very long time now. I welcome input and ideas for blog entries, so if you have something to contribute I'll happily post it.
