Rockdale ~ My Hometown

A few weeks ago I found myself looking for blogs that have something to do with my hometown of Rockdale, Milam County, Texas. And among other things, I found that while > rockdale.blogspot.com < was indeed a blog, it has absolutely nothing to do with my hometown! And since I already have a ten-year-old site at rockdale.myfamily.com entitled "Rockdale ~ My Hometown" I decided to go ahead and "reserve" rockdale-myhometown.blogspot.com for future use. What will I post here? I don't know yet, but since Rockdale.myfamily.com already has an ever-expanding timeline of the life of Rockdale and it's families, I may start posting excerpts from that section.

I received a phone call this a.m. from Joy Graham about the annual Rockdale homecoming. This year's June gathering will be the 75th anniversary of this "reunion" and once again, I will be taking in my boxes of three-ring notebooks which contain a printed version of the timeline from Rockdale.myfamily.com. Joy is the current sponsor of Rockdale.myfamily.com which is a password-protected site, so if you would like to view the photos, et al posted there send me your name and email address and I'll send you an invitation.

FYI . . . rockdale.myfamily.com does not currently have a sponsor and therefore is no longer active / online . . .
