Dear Reader,

Before I started writing my weekly newspaper column,
researching our family tree was my hobby. It was a hobby
I set aside, however, when I started my website in
1996. So the geneological inquiry I got this week came as
quite a surprise.

It seems that a small, dedicated group of hobby
geneologists has traced my paternal grandmother’s
Russian family back to 1798! Wow! While there is
still some doubt as to which branch my family hangs
off of, there is no doubt that my family fits into
their tree somewhere.

If you’re considering peeking into your family history,
I’ve posted a few helpful introductory links at my
brand new Surfnetkids Journal
— where comments are also always welcome.

Today’s newsletter is brought to you by the following sponsor:

In Pursuit of Tolerance


Edmund Burke, an eighteenth-century writer and philosopher said “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” If spreading tolerance and stopping hatred is important to you, the following sites offer both historical perspective and concrete action items.

Close the Book on Hate: 101 Ways to Combat Prejudice



Barnes & Noble and ADL joined forces to create “Close the Book on Hate” after the Columbine High School tragedy in 1999. You can browse through the anti-hate tips by using the left-hand menu, or download the easy-to-print PDF version by clicking on the cover image on the right. Highlights include a glossary and an extensive reading list for further study. A free print brochure is also available at all Barnes & Noble bookstores.

Not in Our Town



“In 1993, hate activities in Billings [Montana] reached a crescendo. KKK fliers were distributed, the Jewish cemetery was desecrated, the home of a Native American family was painted with swastikas, and a brick was thrown through the window of a six-year-old boy who displayed a Menorah for Hanukkah.” Not in Our Town is a PBS film and website that tells the story of how thousands of citizens stood up against the bullies, and declared their town hate-free. Click on Get Involved to learn how you can bring the Not in Our Town campaign to your town or school.

Partners Against Hate



“An alarming and disproportionately high percentage of both the victims of hate violence and the perpetrators are young people under 18 years of age.” This website offers guidance (in the form of printable manuals) for anyone wanting to combat this terrible trend. There are separate sections for students (start an anti-bias program at your school), parents, teachers and law enforcement. To search for answers to commonly asked questions, click on Hate Response Network.
