The Bravo Family Tree Issue

Okay, it's embarrassing. Over a year ago, on my website, I began promising a Bravo Family Tree. I meant well. I truly did.

But, well, there are only so many hours in a day and up till now I have dedicated very few of them to getting the Bravo genealogy in order, attractively displayed and onto my website. I did get promises. From the J and the DH. They would take my info and put in a PDF file and then I could send it to my webmistress, the brilliant MS Shelley, to put up on my site.

Men. Didn't happen. And hey, I had someone to blame other than me! Win/win. Oh, yeah.

But at last, I'm proud to say, I've made an actual move toward fulfilling my Family Tree vow. I bought software. Yes, that's the box you see above. It's really cool software and supposedly idiot-friendly. I like that in a genealogy program. Supposedly I'll be able to do things like add pictures (covers, in the case of the Bravos), and details of the family history. And there are several display modes. The finished product could be a tree, or flower-bedecked.

But I'm getting ahead of myself here. Way ahead. All I'm after now is to fulfill my promise of getting all those Bravos onto an orderly-looking genealogy chart.

I'm getting there, folks. I really am....

Christine,

Very cool idea! I would love to have the patience to put together something for my real family--and here you are doing it for your "Bravo" family. Very cool indeed!

Good luck with that!

Best for a great weekend!

Good luck! I look forward to it. Loving FROM HERE TO PATERNITY--Brand is a great hero and Charlene is good too.

Kim, well I don't. Have the patience. Even for the Bravos, actually. But then again, I did promise. Thanks for the good luck. I'll need it. ;)

Barbs, thanks! The last of the "B" Bravo boys, for now: Buck, Brett and Brand. Yes, there's still Bowie, but he needs time to grow up a little first...
