My quest to
find out more about my family has led me to the Internet and the
launch of this project.
The net is the
first opportunity afforded the human race to collect, retrieve and
exchange information on such a global scale.
If we can harness
this power to better understand ourselves universally as families
and individuals, then doubts in our ability to resolve conflict,
starvation and disease will I believe disappear.
I hope my thoughts
outlined in my biography, throughout these chapters, will put in
context the motives and aspirations for this project and in doing
so reveal the story of my family.
The site in
total will provide links between Pope family members, universal
history, biographies of family members, updated profiles on living
members of the Pope family and lastly a place for this great family
of ours to meet, talk and jointly develop projects and ideas.
is a great starting point with many lessons for the future."
