A message for US visitors:

For years I have welcomed your emails and answered your questions. Today chances are your ISP will block my reply from ever reaching you! A number of ISPs, with AOL leading the pack, are blocking my messages. This so called anti-spam filtering is done on your ISP's server. You will never know. I just wanted you to know that I am as friendly and accessible as I always have been.
However sad, I can live with your ISP denying you my replies, as long as you know why. But if you would like an answer from me, there is something you can do: Ask your ISP about their server-side filtering and how you can influence it. If they do not respond, think about switching to a service provider that takes your concerns seriously.

From time to time genealogists ask me if I can take a picture of the farm or the village their ancestors came from. Some are lucky and the result end up on the The Romsdal Picture Request page.
