Remembering my Dad on Father’s Day

Category: Life,Randomness — Posted by Michael at 1326

emilgatti.comWith both my father and my grandfather gone from the world now, Father’s Day is just another day on the calendar from here on out. However, it’s also a good day to take a moment to remember my father. The easiest way to do that is to take a look at the memorial website that I created when he passed away. It’s a static website (unless anyone submits new memories to be posted) that remains as a tribute to to him.

The site can be found at emilgatti.com.

A bright spot on Father’s Day

Category: Genealogy — Posted by Michael at 2232

I work in the technology industry and am very aware of the global reach of anything I put on the internet. However, I’m still overwhelmed sometimes by the people who find my website and get in touch with me.

Today was one such day. Father’s Day is always a little rough, and I suppose it always will be. This year’s was brightened a bit by a random contact from one of my dad’s childhood friends via the site I created shortly after my dad died, emilgatti.com.

One reason I study genealogy and history is that I feel like you can connect to people who are gone by learning the details of their life. Being contacted by a random person who knew my father when he was 13 and having her share a few memories from that era makes me feel like I connected with my dad in some small way.

You can view what she wrote at emilgatti.com/memories. It’s the last entry at the bottom.
