      I have to believe many of our ancestors are smiling real big when they look
      down and see what are happening with CHS and this listserve.

      They are surely proud of all of our efforts to preserve our heritage and

      I for one am grateful for your stories. When reading about the
      struggles of our ancestors it keeps me humble and thankful for the
      technolgies we have today. This was history in the making. And wouldn't our
      ancestors be proud to know we haven't forgotten them?

      Gerri, I was glad to hear that you are still interested in
      the list!

      Richard, now that you are back, perhaps, we can figure out a
      little more closely what people want to read. I know we can cover a wide
      variety of topics and cover a broad span of interests; however, when I am
      almost the only one sending mail...my stories...one begins to wonder what
      folks really want to hear.

      For instance, Rick Garza and I held a extended discussion on
      the settlement patterns of the Texas Czechs (including the role of pro- and
      anti-sesession counties), and the importance of the blackland prairies
      (including a second migration). At the time we were doing this, I thought,
      "Boy, would l like to hear other views and information on this. I'd like to
      share it with the list" However, since there has been so little traffic,
      the discussion stayed between Richard and myself.

      Another thing which I did think about, should this type of
      discussion go to the list, is ensuring that proper credit to the sources
      used to support the positions. Authors always are due and deserve

      Anyway...in the end, I figured this discussion would just
      send people off yawning.

      It would help to know what people are interested in. I
      really don't wish to torture or at least bore folks.
