Ning website situation --

Sorry, I haven't responded to the website situation. I would be happy to make a donation to continue.

Glenn, thanks for all the work you do.

You will receive my contribution of $20 to help continue this activity. You have done a great job in creating this project, Glenn. It deserves to live. Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I just returned from a visit to New Orleans where I attended graduation activities for my nephew's daughter who graduated with highest honors from Tulane. Another star achiever among Andre Jerome's descendants.

New Spam protection. has just started a new safe guard to keep out spammers. I have deleted many dozens so far.

Now a new member will have to answer the question, Where is the County Courhouse located. This questione will be changed now and then to keep the spammers out. Anyone interested in joining our Kittson County Historical Society page should know that answer or knows someone they can ask. Spammers will not wish to waste their time. If they do we will delete them and…

Pledge to support Ning

Yes, of course I will donate my fair share to keep the website if we, as a group, can raise the funds each year. If everyone is not willing to help fund the project, then it is time to check for other avenues like Glenn described at the last group meeting, but there is no quarantee that other sites would not eventually ask us for fees in the same manner as Ning is now. Maybe we should set a small amount of yearly dues per member so everyone will be "an equal… Continue

May 17th, 2010

Over the weekend we obtained a total of $95.00 in pledges and heard from seven members. We still have not heard from the other 53 members. If we can get $200. in pledges we will be able to buy/upgrade to the Ning Plus features and continue for another year.

I sent out an email to each one of our 60 members but only seven replied and 6 pledged money. That is a poor showing on what one would think was an important subject. I know everyone is busy with life but why go to the…

From time to time you will note our membership will jump from one to five new members and just as quickly drop back to normal. These are either spammers or crack-pots that have no interest in our page but wish to us it for their personal reasons. As quickly as I spot them I punch the delete button and off they go. So far I have deleted 32.

Once I block them for span the network blocks that person with that email address from all two million other web pages on the…

Updating our internet site

I tried typing this earlier but got cut off so if 2 blogs get posted--sorry! I attended the last Kittson Historian meeting this past Wednesday. Glenn gave a full report on the update needed to keep our internet site going. After his recommendation about the new site,, I also checked it out. It seems very good. Glenn has put an extreme amount of time into setting up our current site and also researching the new possiblilities and I am happy to report that I think the new Spruz site… Continue

The Kittson Cty site

I can only send my best wishes for your success in saving the Kittson site. Wish I could do something financially but like too many others, I am unemployed now. Too many good and worthwhile causes and too little money I am afraid. Thank you and I hope you meet your goal. Karin

As you may or may not know, is phasing out their free service as of July 2010. This means we have to upgrade to a new platform, move, or get deleted. As a result I have carefully checked out a dozen sites that provide a free Social website platform. I examined them in detail and narrowed it down to and opened a new page there earlier this month to test it.…

New website

Why won't the new website recognize me as a member? Do I have to join again?
