The 2,996 Project Honouring the Victims of 9-11
As my readers can see in the sidebar, I will be honouring Francis Esposito, who died at the World Trade Center in New York. Since I have just signed up for the project, I know little about him. I will be conducting my own research to learn more, but I do urge anyone who may have information to contact me. If his family or friends happen to read this post, I would be humbly grateful for any stories you could share with me about Francis. I hope to do his memory at least some justice, and welcome your help.
As a professional genealogist, I do have some idea where to look for information, but that will be primarily cold, impersonal facts. If it is possible to do so, I hope to show some of the human side of a man who died as an innocent victim of hatred. I hope that I am capable of that task; I doubt any writer could feel confident of his skill under these circumstances. But I do promise I shall do my best.
To all my readers; I will attempt to keep posting on a regular basis, responding to your comments, and visting your blogs to offer my own comments, as time allows. But I hope you will all understand this project takes precedence. There may be a delay before I respond to you; the memory of Francis Esposito deserves a thorough effort to research his life, and to write a memorial that, I hope, will compel readers to remember that life.
