Ad Free and Paid Analytics Free

I understand that by not adding advertisement and paid analytics tracking my viewers are limited by your willingness to follow me and get the word out to people who may be interested in my work. I make this choice because I don't believe advertising and tracking is as important as content and truth. If you feel the same, get the word out, start a dialog with me. I do the same with those I follow. Thank you!

Berea College gives all colleges an example to follow

A bit of deversion from genealogy, but worthy info:

Berea College in eastern Kentucky (my home state) has a Billion dollars in endowments, much like major universities like Harvard. But, what is this small rural college doing with this money. Investing in it's students! Tuition is free and they only accept lower income students who end up being mostly black and white students from the rural hills of Appalachia (can you say coal mining). While Harvard and the like, sit on their hefty endowments and increase tuition, this same college is a shining example of what our educational system in America is supposed to be about.

Thanks, Berea!
