UPDATE! – This build was featured on the HackADay website on the 2nd of May 2013!! I am humbled by the comments made there and very excited that the project is well received! I hope that others will gather inspiration from it! And for those that make it here, I originally created this website to gather information about my family history. So please check out the home page and if you know of someone with one of the family names listed, please point them this direction. I am particularly interested in anyone that might know more about the Kenyon family history. Cheers! :-)
