As always, thanks to Kim and Erin and Lara and Jenn for their support at Family ChartMasters while I have been working on this dream of mine. I hope they add to our overall mission here to help genealogists inspire their family members with their family history. We know how important it is to invest your own family in their past, and we're working hard to give you the resources to do that.
