What is this blog all about?  I have no idea, as this is my first such an attempt.  If nothing else, it is an excuse to practice my craft of writing, that I so much love.  I’d like to explore some of my favorite topics, such as missions ministry work and family history (genealogy), which is a favorite hobby.

My hope is that the things I write here will somehow enhance missions work, and Eldred (and related) family genealogy work.

Another small, arcane topic is the uniting of Eldreds across the world.  The ELDRED family is a small one, but very rich in some awesome history.  For example, our Eldred family descends directly from King Alfred the Great, an Eldred was the first to bring Nutmeg to the west (they figured very prominently in the early spice trade), and Eldreds were involved in underwriting the pilgrims.

This forum should also serve to publish some previously unknown details about my wife’s CHALOUX (CHALLEAU) family ancestry.  In some recent research, we found some fascinating original documents connecting the CHALOUX family from Quebec Canada back to their early ancestors in Mirebeau, Viennes, France.

As time permits, I may experiment with some of my science fiction writings.

NOTICE TO ELDRED FAMILY members.  Please leave a message and let me know.  I would like to figure out a way to help us all connect here.
