first time or get reacquainted with someone you haven't seen for a while.

Those of us who are trying
to do genealogical research often have to rely on census records for vital
information regarding dates of birth and death. Unfortunately the way this
information was recorded in the various censuses varied. To make matters
worse, the oldest census records
were are transcribed in hand written script. Some of the records are far
less legible than others. Robert Stockman has observed that this is understandable.
Think about the census taker carrying bottles of ink and quill pens from
door to door - juggling all these and
the census book hoping that nothing gets spilled or that blots happen. Its
a wonder that anything got properly transcribed.
Gravestones contain birth and death information that is usually more readable but often
genealogical researchers don't live in the area where the persons under study lived. And in too many cases there is no record where a person
may have been buried.
is a web site that is attempting to provide help to those seeking information
on burial places. Their web site provides not only information on a grave
location but also provides a photo of the headstone so the
researcher can view the information to confirm it was transcribed correctly.

years. Paula A. Sutor reflects on how her holiday traditions - including Thanksgiving - have changed.
Diana Sutor and Robert Stockman compiled a listing of family members
who have served their county. Later we had addition contributions
from David Sutor and Roxann Moore as well as
continued contributions from Diana and Robert. We encourage other visitors
to this site to submit the names of family members who have served or are
serving in the military so we can continue to expand this yearly tribute.
As our families

places to share these stories with the rest of the extended family.

When I moved from Delaware
to California back in 1993, one of the things I immediately missed about the
east coast was the seasons - well, the seasons and good pizza, but that's a whole
different topic. The joke about San Francisco Bay Area weather is that it's 60
degrees and breezy all the time. It's true. It rarely gets above 70 or below
50. Summer is actually a bit chilly here, but spring and autumn are filled with
sunny, sweater -weather days and pleasantly brisk evenings.
was Halloween and it was a clear crisp night. As we left a
friend's house - our last stop of the evening in showing off
my son's homemade robot costume, we looked up in the sky and
saw the shining waxing gibbous moon. Scott, my husband, pointed
out that there was a large ring around it. "That means
it's going to snow," he joked. And just for a moment I
really wished snow were a possibility.

web site is now in its 13th year on line. Over these years
we've had a small but loyal number
of regular visitors and a number of visitors who have stopped
by occasionally. We'd like to be attracting a much large
of regular visitors.
been wondering if
some of our occasional visitors
may not be aware of everything that is available on this
site. So we created this article as a brief overview
of what's here and
it can be found.
PAGE The items on the home page mostly speak for
themselves. There are two items, however, that could use
a little explanation. The links and the menu bar.
throughout the home page are links that will take you from
the home page and onto other pages in this web site. These
links are printed in blue and
are underlined. Sometimes the link
will be the continuation of a home page article or, in
the case of the date book,
the link will take you to a profile page that lists a bit
more information about an individual - sometimes even including
their picture. All of these links appear in a window that "floats" above
the home page. The window has a close box allowing you
to close it and return to a full
view of the
located at the top of the home page just below the banner.
If you move your cursor over the items in the menu bar you
will see each respond by changing color. Each of these menu
bar items are sections of this web site. Each contains
information. We'll explain these sections a bit later in
this article. For now, you need to know two things about
these menu bar items. First, menu button for the section
you are viewing will have orange colored text and it will
click (since you are already on that page). For all the other
menu bar buttons, when the button changes color, you can
click it to be taken to that section of the web site.
of the main pages of the various sections display that same
banner as the home page and the menu bar so you can freely
move about the web site. The first page of a section is a
kind of home page for that section telling you the kind of
information found there and providing links to allow you
to access whatever you wish.
this Site This section is an expanded version
of this article. It contains in-depth information about
each section of the Sutor.Org web site as well as background
information about the creation of this web site and a number
of articles to assist those visitors who would like to
write materials for posting on this site.
