Backgrounds By Marie

Backgrounds for the state, provincial, poem, and IE 4.0+ dedication pages (a triple page set) were borrowed from Marie's website. She has a location set aside for experimenting with her triple page sets and font/link colors. Font colors obtained at her site were used for font & table border and background colors at this site as well. Her backgrounds are also in use with the auxiliary pages to the Message Board Room, and the "Entrance to the Census Rooms" pages.

Marge F. Campbell

  Marge does not have her own graphics website, but one would never know it to see the fine job she did in colorizing the United States Map in use here --- a very kind soul who made my basic map easier on the eyes! Thank you, Marge, very much!

Bob Craycroft

Another kind soul (he does not have a graphics site either but did a great job with organizing photos at his own site) who rescued map users at this site by reducing the size of my Canadian Map so that it fit nicely on one page.  Thanks, Bob,  very much!

Debby's Animation

Over 300 pages of animated gifs at this site arranged for easy viewing. My mail and e-mail signs, Pegasus,  the computers in the Computer Room,  the "New" sign in the Gen-Office,  and construction page Halloween animations came from Debby's site.  The snail actually moves at great speeds but has been slowed to a stop on the Orphans' home page so that everyone can get a good look at him.

Designer Graphics by Cheryl

The backgrounds for both message boards came from the "Free Backgrounds" section of this graphic website.

Digital Tapestries

The background for the subscription page was obtained from this graphics website.

El Merko

El Merko, who according to his website bio, grew up as an orphan and now has his own design company, has a wide range of interesting backgrounds at his on-line site, including the one for this page, the Home page, the Canadian and U.S. maps, State Links, and Guestbook-signing pages.

And yet another kind soul  (as well as being one of the Freepages computer experts at Rootsweb), who came to the rescue when I (a "newbie" to all of this) wanted "pop up" cursor menus to appear at the Orphan door and each Orphan window. She did this by cutting the Orphans' home into neat little rectangles then piecing them back together again.  Now users can see a caption for each room before clicking. Thanks very much, Elsi!
