ACFN Obituary site nearly completed.

We have made great progress on the ACFamily Obituary web site and plan to announce its opening in the next NetLetter (#1354). We have some final adjustments to make and also need to finish importing nearly 300 obits from the old site. The site will be completely searchable and will be funded using donations made to the ACFN. (more on this later as well).

We know that not everyone is "into" obits, but as we all age many of our airline friends and colleagues will pass before we do. The most important aspect of the site is to be aware of the passing of former colleagues in a timely manner so you can attend their service if desired.

We also found a need to build a permanent (at least as permanent as the internet can be) site to honour the past and present airline employees who have contributed to Canadian aviation. There's no need to be inducted into any "Aviation Hall of Fame" *** to be recognized in the ACFN Obituary area.

After many requests to post obits in the past year, we have been busy creating the new site to replace the old one which was obsolete and difficult to maintain.

Subscribers to the NetLetter (and anyone else), will be invited to post obituaries for their loved ones that were Air Canada, TCA, Canadian, CP Air, etc. employees. More info next week.
