The only thing better than a genealogy pub with everyone's favorite brew
would be to add the library that Craig has envisioned in his retirement
community. Just picture this: big tables spread with papers and books with a
long oak bar along the one wall (microfilm viewing stations optional) and
bookshelves along the back and other side wall. The front is all glass
overlooking a marvelous landscape or gardens, or even a cobblestone town
center complete with fountain. The books in this retirement community are
the accumulation of the personal libraries of the residents. A sign swings
in the gentle breeze "Surname Pub" with the symbol of a pedigree chart. Of
course free wireless is the norm and there is always a few "regulars" on
hand to brainstorm brick wall problems with or to reminisce: "Remember the
FGS conference in the Quad Cities?" "Yeah, how can anyone forget?"
Craig, if you build it, they will come.
