The target audience for the Newsletter were all the members of Kamala-Srinivasan (my parents) and Jayalakshmi-Ranganathan (Amritha's parents) families. The initial issues had only family news, some photos and downloaded articles. Later many family members started contributing articles and I added puzzles, a Tamil section etc. Some issues had video links as well. The memorial issues after the death of Jayalaksmi Ranganathan (my mother-in-law) and Vanaja (my sister) had articles by almost all the family members. Similarly the Centenary publications of C.Srinivasan (my father) and T.Ranganathan (my father-in-law) had over 20 contributors each.
You can see the links for Issue No. 40 to 62 - February 2006 to March 2018. In every issue there are Family news, photos, interesting articles by me and a number of relatives, humour, crosswords, brain teasers, cryptoquip, cryptic crosswords, games and much, much more.
The issues from 1 - 39 were hosted in the free geocities site which folded up. Later Harish (my son) presented me a website (www.sparthasarathy.biz and www.sparthasarathy.com) in Yahoo Small Business. I am hosting all my output in this site for over 10 years. If you want to know all the sites I have created, here is a list with links.

and a few more and of course the Family Newsletters. The earlier issues of the Family Newsletter are in my hard disk and hopefully I will upload them some day.
