Big update:
I have altered Mike Blewitt's entry to point to his site blewitthistory.com on the links page. I have written of my intentions to add dynamic content to Bluett.com using open source software from OpenACS.org on the message board in this message. I hope to have the time to do it fairly soon. Michael K. Blewett has written to me telling me of his research on William (Bluett, Blewitt) Blewett who settled on the Great Pee Dee River in North Carolina, Michael is looking for descendents of William. Michael has also mailed me two large document which I have uploaded. One contains "Blewett, Blewitt, Blouet, Bloet and Bluett" references (warning: large - 265Kb), derivations of the name and references to literature. The other contains a Devonshire Blewett family tree. Both have been scanned with a current virus scanner by me. I have added Mary Ellen to the links page, she is looking for information on John BLUETT from Baggotstown, County Limerick.

The discussion board is back up again, according to the server's front page:
"March 30, 2002: this server is back up and running, thanks to Jin and Tom. Every week or so the Linux operating system that sits behind this service freezes. We can never figure out why. We had some downtime because we needed to move the machine from Waltham, Massachusetts to Cambridge, MA. This should make it easier to reboot in the future. Sorry for the downtime."

The discussion board is currently down (cause unknown). The server it runs on (greenspun.com)is down. See the thread on Ars Digita.com.
