the Grimes (family) connection at www.grimestree.net
Please excuse the digression, but I have discovered that many, if not most of those, whom I had hoped to reach, using this website, have little or no experience using computers, the internet, and the world wide web.
PDF files are best for saving and/or printing whole documents.
Web pages (in the internet browser format) like this one are best for quick searches and previewing.
A web page will open faster than a PDF file with the same content. Web pages are easier to update.
Web pages are constructed "to show the content in the most effective way on screen" which is often at odds with printing that content.
For more help for Internet and computer newcomers, go to
a help topic at the bottom of this page.
Many topics are available in the Adobe (.pdf) format, and, in the listing below, they are denoted with/preceded by "PDF" PDF files (in the portable document format) will appear with the icon shown here if your default PDF reader is Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is usually installed on all new computers.
Almost all topics (except reunion archives) are available as web pages such as this one (.htm/.html, internet browser format), and, in the listing below, they are not denoted.
Some topics are available and are listed in both formats.
