Monroe County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society

I have offered to help with the maintenance of the genealogy website of the Monroe County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. The website resides on the RootsWeb area of Ancestry.com. I don't know much about either RootsWeb or Ancestry.com. It should be an interesting learning experience.

Yesterday, using some suggestions from friends at the computer club, I was able to plug the information supplied to me by my contact in Ohio and gain access using Fire FTP which I have installed on my Mozilla Firefox browser. I'm reasonably confident that I have enough HTML knowledge to be able to make a contribution now that I can access the website. I don't have skill to do fancy things, but I believe what I know how to do will allow me to do some useful projects for the group. I'm looking forward to the challenge and the mental stimulation.

It's really fascinating that today's technology allows us to communicate and work together from widely separated geographic locations.

My husband's ancestor, Joseph Starkey, moved to Monroe Co., OH about 1820. He had lived here in VA and served in the Rev. War. What a coincidence to see your site linked while I'm on Shari's site due to my Cox ancestry! Small world!
