What you wrote, I have written, simular messages. I agree that we are family and that is why I stayed on as adminstrator. Why would your opinion not count as anything....you are a very good person....and I listen to what everyone says. This list is all of ours, everyone that is listed may write anything they want to. This list has Freedom of Speech.
I do not think I have curtailed anyone from saying anything. We have to stick together as a family. I can not do to much to uplift the list for I am having health problems. I can't spend the amount of time I used to on genealogy, for I also have other things going on in my life. I have tried to be fair with all of you. I think as time goes by, we will begin to feel free to express ourselves again, and I incourage that. New news is always good.
I hope you all continue on the list and feel free to write. I really do wish we could send pictures for it would be nice to know what we all look like.
I have opened a site on My Family, for All My Family. It is the same type of site that Shannon has. (RFA) I just opened it and now I need to work on it. I am new at this, so I do not know what I am doing. I have many names in my family, as does everyone. My main names are Dillow, Holtzhause, Reph, Steinmetz, Slightom, Baker, Sitter, Fischbach, Roecklein. Most of my Father's side started in 1737 Skipack, PA, 1800 Rowan County, N.C. to 1818 Union County, Southern IL, St. Louis MO, Peoria, IL, DeKalb County, IL, Kane County IL. I have many cousins in IL. I never new much about my Mother's Father, for he died when she was five years old. That is why my interest in the Rape Family started. For he was a Reph, Rape, Raph, from Northampton County, PA. I hope to be able to get started, but it is hard to find the time.
You may have stories to tell or loved ones on the list you need to reach..............so the list will remain good ole'
guss-reeb. I do not have expectations of any member. You, are the list, so write when you can, I certainly have not been writing, for I have allot going on. The way the world and our lives are, the best thing we can do is stay connected and pray for one another.
Thanks for writing Linda and Ulrich and never think what you say, does not count with me.....for it counts more than you know. I know Gail has been going through allot and I am glad Linda mentioned that. For those that may not know already, her husband Stan had heart surgery, her sister has cancer and of course we all know little Jacob. Everyone is holding their own, but I just wanted to make sure you all knew.
Wiith much Love to All,
