Welcome to Family Ties 2 !  All members of the family are invited & encouraged to help keep this web site current.  Submissions are accepted from all family members.  

Update on Grandma Leah:  
Grandma had a new knee put in on the 29th.  She had some problems after the surgery and had to go to a nursing home for a few days but is back home now.  Uncle Val and Aunt Gloria have been down for a couple of weeks to help out but will leave on Saturday.  Dad and I will move in with Grandma for a short while until she can be on her own.  She has physical therapy three days a week that she must go to.

Katrina and Aaron Travel to Utah:  Katrina and Aaron are in Salt Lake.  Aaron's grandmother passed away last Monday so they have gone to Utah for the funeral.  They bought a new jeep so they were able to drive their own car this time.  I don't know how much time they will be there, as they had to leave in such a hurry.

NOTE FROM THE FAMILY:  Aaron and Katrina, we send you our sympathies for your loss, and hope your travels are safe.

Suggestion from Katrina:  Yep, here comes Halloween!  Time for people to decorate their homes and yards with ghosts, goblins and other fun and scary things.  Katrina has suggested that everyone take a picture of their Halloween decorations and send them in to Family Ties 2, where we can share them with the rest of the family.  

Any Halloween pictures sent in (yards, costumes or whatever), will be set up to be accessible here at our home page during the month of October.  So grab your cameras, click off a few pictures, and send 'em on in!  Thanks for the suggestion Katrina!

Homestead Papers:  Brand New!  Chronological index of papers, legal documents, photographs etc., related to the Alaskan Campbell Creek Homesteaders during the early 1960's, continuing through to the present time.  A work in progress. Many thanks to all those who have researched, stored, and/or supplied material for this project, especially Brook Taylor, Daren Taylor, Linda Petersen and Cindy Ausick.   Any submissions of un-posted materials regarding the case are gratefully accepted.

Note: 9/22/01 - New viewing format!
