Why The Minstrel?

Back in the early 90's, I initiated a family newsletter for my mom's family. When trying to think of a name, I thought of my sister's high school newspaper, which was called The Troubadour. I liked the idea of the newsletter being named after poet-musicians, so I named it The Minstrel, with the thought that travelling minstrels probably brought news to far-off places, just as our family newsletter would.

The newsletter unfortunately did not last, but perhaps this blog will become its successor...
