  1. Fantastic website! You have fractured some of my genealogical brickwalls. Guernsey, Tostevin, Clemons, Shepard, Ozanne, Carre. Do you accept pictures? I have some Carres I'm willing to share. Pat

    1. Pat,
      Thanks much for your kind words and I am so happy to hear you found my site helpful. You made my day!
      Yes, I accept pictures. Many people have sent pictures. They preserve history and really add interest. You may send them to my email at somershistory@wi.rr.com. Make sure you identify the people and/or place if the photos are of a farmhouse or building. Make sure I know what family page to post them too. I like to site a source for the photos. If you do not want your name published I suggest something like "Photo Courtesy of "c" family". You can decide.
      Any questions? Let me know. And again, thanks much. I look forward to adding your collection.
