'Other things may change us, but we start and end with the Family'
Here is the opportunity to express our sincere gratitude on being a family, being together, getting to know one another... Here is a family site that we hope will be fun for all.
Although, the site is currently set as a platform for our first ever family reunion, a special 30th anniversary of the passing our late brother, cousin, uncle and father Semiou Kayode P. Akanni Owokoniran, and a gathering to honor and remember those who are no longer with us, we believe that it can be used for a lot more than updating family members on this coming event. Those of you that have been through the site will see that there is plenty of room for a family tree, fun filled facts on family members that have come and gone, new additions to the family, and pictures of past and present events, a wonderful legacy for all, especially for younger generations of Owokoniran.
The site has built-in restrictions to avoid personal data from being posted on the website. Also, anything that is being submitted to the family website will not be visible until the administrators approve it. The approval process is a simple one, you input your data, the site generates an email to the administrators and they post your information. This extra step keeps anyone that finds access to the site unable to post and deface our family site. Since this is our first time around at producing a living document of this magnitude, we want to make it as easy as possible for the older generation, and some of the younger generation, that may not be as computer savvy as some of the regular users.
Please take the time to review each link at the startup of the site and input as much information as you would like. Personal information "is not" published on the website as an added security feature, but we encourage everyone to input all of this data in the "update profile" screen.
Please contact any administrator for suggestions on how we might improve on the family website. Thanks for all your support and let's the fun begin!
