Cathy..

I agree with you. I think Mauro changed the page..lets see if we're right. I love your blog Mauro.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. Liz has been really keeping me on my toes lately. She keeps showing me things and the I go nuts. You know James, I kept trying to remember to omit the "u" from my words but its so hard when you're used to something. Carole, do the English also write their words this way?

As for blogging, I have only ever read Carole's and now Mauro's and I love them both. Mauro, can I add your blog to my webpages? I think its pretty cool. Maybe something I'll try next (like I have so much more time to try something new, right?)

Yes - that (as far as we Brits are concerned) is proper English.
A quick 'anecdote' for you on this question:

When I was 11 years old and started High school I asked why "Americans couldn't spell?" (remember this was back in 1952, more than half a century ago.... and that's probably why people call me an 'old bat' these days Crying or Very sad )- well my teacher explained that the mis spelling used by Americans was probably due to there being many who actually had to LEARN the language as it wasn't their mother tongue, and thereforee to make it easier most words were written almost phonetically.

Obviously nowadays the differences are widely accepted, but for the older Brits like me, the 'ou' is ingrained. One word though that always makes me squirm when spelled 'your way' is MANOEUVRE! Sad

But I do confess that I often want to 'correct' spellings that miss out the 'u' hide sorry!

Hi Cathy & Nuccia,

I did tweak the blog a little. I work with a template and then make subtle changes in the code.

Nuccia, You can add my blog to your list and i think that you should definitely start your own

Nuccia, Liz, Carole everyone thanks for this website - it looks great!

I got to the photo galleries and filled my quota, and I wanted to show the family photos so...Looking at Gina's and Nuccia's I have lots of work to do.

Ferro Family

Next to put in an avatar -> one of the cats of course, to change once in awhile so the others won't be jealous. I've got a small clip of Spirit all ready.

Nuccia,

Thanks, it does need some explanatory text though and the tools are easy enough. It's 3:18 here and I have to get up sometime: take mom to church, both her and aunt to engagement party, but first to the library to scan some more.

In the topic about WWII, the article was very powerful. I'll send it to some of my Jewish friends.

I looked there because my cousin Stan has photos his dad took while in Italy during the war. They are mostly of Salerno, Anzio, and Rome with smaller towns in between. Some are heavily damaged; one picture is of civilians gathered around the fence of a building. Another is of Uncle Joe with his hand on a disabled German moble gun in Rome and you can see a little girl coming up with a cup of something. Stan said his father stayed with a family in Naples, but there is only one photo with civilians and him. There are also postcards, including some in French that he sent to my aunt.

I'll try to get them to the site soon.

Sleepy Dave

I went to your site too. You are a gifted photographer. You have some beautiful photos there. I saw a newspaper article on a train accident but it was too small for my old eyes to read. But it looks like a tragic story. Nice start to you site.

Hi,
Thanks for the encouragement about the site. There really is much to do. Like make the pics and articles easier to read. And text to explain. Some pics allow summaries and notation, which show up when you place the pointer over them. This works on some computers and even on this computer, on some files and not on others: frustrating!

You can click on the link next to the pic (after clicking on the thumb, which goes to a window with a larger pic and buttons to start a slideshow) to download different sizes of the pic. Haven't done this yet. The idea is to make them available to relatives of course, and then others with interest in this.

I'm trying to make sure credits are shown, for historical as well as "legal' reasons. On Flicker, copyright is full by default. Also, I have to have permission to show photos of friends and others if not in a public place, or so I have to find out. I have alot of concert photos that keep me reminded that I attended -> too busy clicking to enjoy the music.

The newspaper article is about my parents, sister and cousins. Only my cousin Rochelle was ok. I got two great people who raised me.

There are many more photos, like of my parents (both pairs) when they were young.

Well you should be proud Dave because you're doing a great job. Its not easy creating web pages..it takes a lot of time and dedication and sometimes you just get so overwhelmed with everything. I know I have been at it for a few days now and I'm still not happy with the way the pages look. Theres so much information to transcribe but how do you put it in a page and make it look good too?

I think I will give up and go to bed now..its 1:15 here and I'm wiped out. Think I'll even pass on going out for tonight... Shocked

Nuccia,

The website is a free one through my ISP and requires no HTML or other coding. That's what I wanted to learn when the other computer died; got a degree in CS, but still so much to learn. I'm using my cousin's now. Anyway, I just have dial up with Juno and mysite allows album creation easily. There are HTML options though. There have been many hours spent scanning and searching, thanks to ItalianGenealogy, Amici and now Gente AND real luck when cousins found papers or my uncle's brother told me where the DeMarzios came from and the ship name: now my cousin Rochelle's son Joe Hickey and his wife are going to Italy and know where relatives are. Yes! Right on time too. My cousin Carol also will be on a cruise to Capri and Naples; not too far to Sant' Elia.

How to put info on the page and look good? Look at Cathy's, Riccardo's, Gina's, Rita's and Carole's!

And a belated Happy Birthday to you. I saw the post on Amici and was also too tired to say then.

Dave

Ok, here I go: celenzaheritage.googlepages.com/

It is in honor of my DH's ancestral town of Celenza Valfortore, province of Foggia. It is a work in progress...only online for less than 24 hours! I hope it is not premature to put the link up! I still have to do lots of work on it, but wanted to share with my gente family.

Very Happy
