I spent a few days finally updating my antique website, Cape Ann Web.  I checked every darn link on the Community listing page - think they all work now.

Revisited some cool sites during the process and found one of my favorites:

http://www.shuteandmerchant.com/

The Shute and Merchant Company was once located at the Head of the Harbor in Gloucester.

Mary Palstrom, a descendant of the founders, has done a lot of updating and redesigning since I last visited her site - cool stuff!

When Mary first put up her site I discovered the daughter of Orlando Merchant was my childhood neighbor. I eventually bought the house after she passed and sent her items I found in the house going back to the Shute & Merchant Company. She has done a wonderful job with that site.

Kudos to people who expend enormous amount of time and resources recording local histories. It is an invaluable service to society.
