In Memoriam:
 Births, Marriages and Deaths this year were read from the newsletter. We had a moment of silence for those who had died. 

 No new repairs are needed that we know of. Please report broken ones if you know of them. Adam Boyd Kalloch in St. George, recently repaired, was ancestor of many, including Ken Kalloch. We walked to visit his newly-restored stone after lunch. 

Visit our Website!
 Ken Kalloch: The website July-August averaged about 100 visitors/day. Our family tree is on Ancestry.com, also Kalloch.org, 22,326 people. Since last August Ken has added 5743 people. 3667 photos are attached to those people. Margaret, Finley's daughter married a Boyd. Her great-granddaughter Angeline Hodgkins was b. 1820 in Nobleboro, m. Moses Horne. Angeline's obit. from Library of Congress: "Death of Pioneer" 1902, says she had 3 daus from Moses Horne, 1 son from Albert Perry Rockwood, 27 grands, 68 gt. grands. We need to connect with them before the 150th!

New Business: Paul Wilson suggested that as we have $159 left in the funds for the website, we allocate $441 more to bring it up to $600. MSV. Ancestry subscription was $130, but is free because Ken has an LDS subscription.
