The Website Author note
We would like to sincerely thank the following
people for their work and efforts, and for the
contributions that they have made to theSetonFamily.com Website,
since its' inception on CompuServe beginning in January 1996.
After progressing from CompuServe, the Seton Family website became
an official, independant web-domain in January 2000, under the title
of setonfamily.com, which domain name registration lapsed and was
seized by a Hong Kong-based company operating out of Vancouver, in 2003.
However, as from before and since then, we have steadily grown with the
invaluable assistance of a great many people, some of which we have
