The Update Project is moving along well
with new volunteer Immediate Past-President Kurt Brown giving us a much
appreciated boost. He is currently processing the updates from 2006,
which leaves only 2007 to the present remaining.
In addition Member, Deborah Cooper [BB
ID 17328] has been contributing much extra information not only about
her own line but other lines as they are encountered by her research.
Deborah is a tenacious researcher and definitely receives my researcher-of-the-year
award. Much thanks, Kurt and Deborah.
Finally, I would like to announce my
intention to have a feature article in each issue of the Journal highlighting
I look forward to working with the other
OFA members and officers, updating some dates and facts on the early
3 generations of Ostranders and helping to celebrate the 350th Anniversary
of Ostranders in America in 2011 in Hurley and Kingston, NY. I look
forward to seeing you there.
