What's this site?

This is a personal website. Who knows what may eventually show up here? Mostly, however, it will contain family history
I'd like to share with others. In the few years I've been doing genealogy I've relied on the work of strangers and kin who
share their findings with little direct thanks or recognition. This is meant as a miniscule attempt to pass on the favor.

Why "zzottt"?

It's short, snappy, and silly. I wanted something general in case I might have a variety of stuff here. I wanted something
memorable. Besides, it reminds me of cartoons, which have always been my favorite reading material.
