    The reason I ask is I know my Father possibly visited them and would like to see if I could find what he wrote about. He always talked about a lot of the issues discussed here, but no one in the family would listen to him. I've done a lot of googling but can't seem to locate anything.

    He died in 1999. It's a long shot but it doesn't hurt to try.

    Thanks in advance.

    You might start looking here through some of the archived writings and get some clues about older sites;

    and here:

    Randy's site was around during your Dad's time. It's the first site I came on while using Alta Vista of all things as my search engine. Is Alta Vista still around? LOL

    Good luck I hope you find what you're looking for!

    Randy (aka dogpatch) site was around in 1997 or possibly earlier - really great site

    It’s very likely he posted on the newsgroup alt.religion.jehovahs-witn. That was around many years before this forum started. Look at google groups ( to search the archive.

    Thanks everyone! I have my work cut out for me. One thing in my favor, I do know the screen name he always used on the internet.

    I was around in 1995. The BIG site was Watchtower Observer. H20 was the big forum. Lots of us were on the Jesus Witness email list in 1995 and after. There were archives of the old H20 saved. Maybe there's some info on the new H20.

    Thanks Gary....

    It makes me wonder how many old timers might have been corresponding with my dad.

    Your responses are appreciated.
