Starting in 1983, Delores Valdez Elles was the editor for our brand new “Family Newsline”.  Over the years it became a much-anticipated arrival in the US mail.  Not only did it entail gathering the news but also compiling it, checking/editing it, printing, mailing (which included keeping an updated/current mailing list) and more!

We will be adding more to this narrative over time as well as posting (hopefully) all issues of the Newsline/Newsletter.  Delores and Cathy will be contributing from their archives.

Thank you, Delores, Cathy Assessor Stone, Aunt Ellen (roving reporter), and to Bob Valdez who collected, saved, and provided most of the newsletters appearing here.
