We are now the Caperton Society! As a result of feedback and encouragement of so many of you, The site, which never really had a name to begin with, is now the home of "The Caperton Society". This site was started in 2002 and had about 3 pages which included a page on the USS Caperton. I always just called it "Caperton.info". In the last year the site has grown dramatically and is providing research assistance to more and more Capertons all the time. So it made sense to formalize the role of this site as a center for Caperton research.
So what does it mean to be "a society" ? You tell me! I have an idea of what I would like, which is to enable others to participate in the site, but let me hear from you about what role you would like this new Society to play in the Caperton surname. In the meantime and as the site continues to evolve, I want to thank all of you who continue to donate information and documents to me to add to the website! you cannot imagine how excited I get when I check the email and there is new information there waiting to be added to the site! Keep it up!
I have added a couple more pages to the site to let you know a bit about the site. The first and most interesteing page is probably the "Whats Available" page. This can be found in the footer menu and is a constantly updated page of what kind and how many records and documents are available. There is also an "About" page in the same footer menu that begins to describe he functions f the new society. ***HOWEVER*** this is just a draft and is subject to change, based on input from all of you!
