Lo, those many years ago, we all sang "The Times They Are A Changin'" - or at least those of us of a certain age did. Well, here we go again. And as the times change, we must do the same. Through the marvels of modern technology, we want to stay connected and keep supporting each other in our genealogical pursuits. And someday soon have a great big, in-person party to celebrate STGS!
