I've uploaded my genealogy to GenCircles. Feel free to give me any feedback if you can suggest improvements.  Some of my current genealogy research topics are described here.  My old attempt using Ultimate Family Tree to publish a dozen generations was here.

Below is presumably Hampton Virginia around early 1912.  The bearded man is Harry D.M. Howard, his wife Sarah E. Rowand (Gilpin) right of him.  The man on the far right is C.Monteith Gilpin (Sarah's son from first marriage), with his wife Gertrude resting her arm on his leg.  Front center is C.Valesca holding Norma, with daughters Elizabeth and Evalyn on the step behind.  Left front is Ethyl and her daughters Marion and Gertrude.  The middle-aged woman in white is presumably Evalyn (Harry's daughter from first marriage).  The couple in back is Guy with (fiancee?) Florence Brew.

My dad is near the lower left below, dad's father Robert is at the top and dad's mother Evalyn is third from the right. My maternal aunt and cousin are near the middle.  From the left are dad's aunts Norma and Elizabeth, and from the right are dad's uncles Conroy Adams and "Fred" Weber:
