My name is Ron Vincent. I go by “Ron.V” on most of my websites. You’re reading this because we’re related to each other.
If you want the full story of why this blog was created, click on “Why Was This Blog Created?” in the upper-right corner of the blog. This is the short version. I uploaded all the family photos I’ve collected to this website: MyKinFolks.org which is my personal genealogy website. Before I get too old to remember, I needed a way to share these photos and the stories behind them that I’ve collected over the years.
Because of DNA genealogy and other websites, I’ve made recent contacts with my first wife’s Cousins Randy & Deb Youngblood and on my dad’s side of the family with distant Cousin Ted McClellan, each of which have shared some rare and precious photos I’ve never seen. None of us have. Many photos were shared on the Blake Family Reunion Facebook page that Cousin Claude Plowman setup for us. And Cousin Judy Abels has shared so many photos we can’t identify them all. What treasures!
I plan to share this Blog by email and Social Media (Facebook, Google+, etc.) then all you who receive it can forward it to your kin (children, siblings, etc.) who are related to me. As you read the posts on this Blog, hopefully you’ll learn something you didn’t know about our family. And if you have additional photos, maybe you’d be willing to share copies of them.
So browse around. Check out the the other pages and posts. Leave a comment here, post a comment on Facebook, or send me an email reply. If you have questions, please email me. I’ll be glad to answer. If you don’t have my email address, just leave a comment, tell me how I know you, and ask for it. I’ll have your email address and I’ll email you.
