Greetings and Welcome

This Web Site was orignally hosted by RootsWeb.Com. For economic necessity, "Rootsweb.Com" has been merged into Ancestry.Com; which company appears to have suppressed all but a half dozen or so of the multitude of the "ROOTSWEB" categories. One category that survived is "Genealogy"; "Miscellaneous" may be another. I am updating both, sporadically.

This site still costs the author nothing; which means the host will display ads by clients who pay the bills.

- Maurice Fraser McDonell

This site was organized to allow the visitor to concentrate on one
or more major categories of interest.
The "Directory" Link leads to an
Index of Categories used to develop the site:
I have validated only one Link: "Genealogy".
(I am working on "Miscellaneous" and hope to repair it soon; sorry for the inconveniences caused.)

CREDITS: These Web Site pages were originally designed using Microsoft FrontPage Editor; which accounts for the artistic backgrounds and other decorative devices. It also accounts for a lot of surprises; especially when editing and locating images. MS FP Editor code is creative but some of it is difficult to comprehend and edit. One can gain valuable training by rooting out these Microsoft artifacts; replacing them with standard HTML (HyperText Markup Language) Code. I have been experimenting with Cute HTML and it works if you understand Code - onscreen cue cards pop up whenever you use the left arrowhead.
MS FP Publisher (bundled with FP Editor) is NOT recommended. It is a program that is meant to recruit you to the MS Web Hosting site.
In this Web Site, publishing new and revised pages is achieved using Globalscape Cute FTP - an amazingly reliable and useful tool.
Page updates are done with "Cute HTML". New pages and content are created in Notepad, with new code written as per Mastering HTML 4 Second Edition - SYBEX.

This author is an Amateur; from the Latin 'amar' meaning 'to love'. One has to be an Amateur in order to tolerate the continuous mischief created by some software manufacturers. I salute those professionals who live and breath with these amazing programs!

Thank you for visiting!
