Lilly turns 11-years-old today! Here’s some throwback photos from the day she was born.
At the beginning of the year, I promised more birthday announcements. But it feels sort of silly to lead that off with my own birthday, especially in February. If your birthday was in January or earlier in February, let me know and I’ll get you set up with a post and a schedule for next year.
Anyhow, Happy Birthday to me! It’s been a pretty good year so far and planning many more days like today.
Lotsa love, Jim

Hey Arconati Family, Happy New Year 2018!
This is a quick administrative post to let you know that it is my intention to bring back much of the birthday, anniversary and well-wishes event postings this year. We’ve missed these way too often and at some point stopped entirely, but I have a renewed inspiration to make those happen with regularity this year. If you would like someone’s birthday or event to be included, please feel free to comment here or contact me more directly. Thanks!
Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 31st 2016!
The time is almost here for the Arconati Family Reunion. You may have already received a forwarded email, but if not here is your invitation and the relevant text from the email that Vince wrote.
I am writing on behalf of the South County Arconati family. The Arconati family reunion will be held on July 31, 2016 at Suson Park in South St. Louis County. The hours are from 11:00 AM until dark. It will be at the main pavilion by the lake. I have attached a link to the park website.
You can get all the information on the park and directions from the site. We have had the reunion there in the past so most of you are already familiar with the park. I would like to gather everyone’s email address as they tend not change as much as phone numbers and addresses. We can try to gather the rest at the reunion in July. Hopefully we can get an all-inclusive list of emails so we can stay in touch.
Be sure to pass along the invite to the family members in your chain. We are getting close to the date. See everyone in a few weeks!
There will be a reunion this summer. News and details will be posted as soon as they are available.
The 2014 Arconati Family Reunion is coming up and it is coming up FAST! You may have already received the flyer in the mail but if not, here it is along with a downloadable PDF version with the relevant details. Can’t see the image? Scroll down for a transcript.

The reunion was a big success and a big thank you from me to Linda and Joe Filla for planning it. My wife Lisa was very happy to share the photos and documents that she has been able to gather from Ancestry.com, and my plan is to make those available RIGHT HERE on this site as soon as possible, most likely in the next week. My Dad was also very touched by everyone’s interest in the photos that he’s taken both this year and previous years.
