I've created groups at Yahoo.com for most of my primary families to maintain a place where files, charts, and photos can be exchanged and where family members can get to know each other. This is the link for the Beesmerfamily group. Membership and posting is monitored by yours truly to prevent the crazies from being a pest. Membership is free so take a look and join. Once on the site, members can create their own folders and photo albums for sharing with the group. Everything I post on the site is available for members to take (download).
When you visit this blog, please leave a comment so I know there's some interest.
