Family Related Book
A 576 page work of historical fiction
on the life of very early family member Abraham Blish (ca. 1618-1683)
is now available from the author,
Patricia Blish Gould, for $25.00 (US).
This notice is for informational purposes only. www.blish.org and its owners are not involved with this project.
We've got a huge amount of directly Blish-related genealogical
information on the site; over 190 megabytes in total.
You'll find images of family members, naval vessels, artifacts,
wills and deeds, inventions and much, much more as you browse
through the database of Blish ancestors. Blish folk have served
in almost every US conflict from the American revolution through
the civil war until today. They have commanded platoons, large
military bases, submarines and strategic space assets. They have
been directly involved in pioneering technologies such as
radio, navigation, and even large-scale milling.
All of this information is arranged so you can travel up and
down the family tree quite easily. You can also search for specific family members.
I hope you enjoy your visit; if you're a Blish, please take
a moment to email. And remember, I can always use scans
and copies of old family photos. Tell me what they show and
I'll see to it they get into the database for everyone's benefit.
If you have photos of Blishes - or the places they lived, people they married or parented, products and businesses they were involved in - please, please, consider contributing a scan of those family treasures to the site.
As these things are lost, more often than not, they are lost forever; if we can get them online here and in the database, you can be assured that there will be a permanent historical record in digital form that no set of unfortunate circumstances can destroy.
The site's data is digitally backed up on multiple gold CD's, and archived in two houses and a bank safe-deposit box - so we're about as safe as you can get. Plus, we just want a scan, we don't want your heirlooms.
www.blish.org is hosted on a dedicated server courtesy of one of the family businesses,
Black Belt Systems. We have essentially unlimited space for
images and data, so please, consider contributing to our collection of Blish family history.
