A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'. Enjoy!
We take communication so much for granted, now days, phones that fit in our pockets, no more waiting to call long distance, after 6.00pm, because it was cheaper. Photos taken and sent to loved ones, instantly. Paul and I have just spent 90 minuets on Skype, chatting to our family. Years ago it would have been a very quick call and letters.
This got me thinking about communications. I found an article about the first phone call to the South Pole, 70 years ago this month.
