  1. thanks so much for the always interesting Sunday Sundries. The comedy bit was fun, the Porters book so very important, and the the 17th essay and remarks absolutely fascinating. As well, as a long time OGS member thanks for including their eWeekly info …. on which historical societies can post upcoming events, and more. The eWeekly covers far more than just genealogy.

    As you do, John. Many thanks.
