My Other Web Pages

  WTKM The station I listen to while making these pages. 

OREGON-TRAIL. A mailing list for those who want to research their
family history concerning anything to do with the Oregon Trail.
The history of the trail is an appropriate topic for discussion
as well as postings of wagon train lists, and anything else
genealogical including stories of life as a pioneer, diaries,
queries, books, etc. - these are all welcome! Western states
involved would mostly be Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming,
Idaho, Oregon, and Washington; maybe even California, Utah and
others. Time periods include around 1840-1900. Tell us about your
pioneer ancestor! You must be a subscriber to post to the list.
To subscribe send the word "subscribe" (without the quotes) as
