      It can be a struggle to get the younger generation to be interested in their family history. The new Google Earth Street Views gave me an idea.

      This morning at 9:57, I sent a family email saying that there was a contest with a prize for those under age 20 and a different prize for anyone over age 20. On Google Earth Street View, they were to determine the brand of beer sold at cousin Frantisek's pub in Senne. In 42 minutes, 10 year old Kirsten had the answer. Three minutes later, Ethan, age 28, Canadian, studying in England but today visiting Switzerland, answered Saris correctly.

      Ain't technology wonderful?

There is a bit of a learning curve on manipulating the direction of travel with your mouse wheel but it works and will be used at upcoming family get togethers.
