The webmaster, as the developer/editor of websites are usually called, is always open to suggestions and comments. Each page will have a link at the bottom for you to send email with your comments, suggestions or concerns. Items shown below that are bold and underlined are links to somewhere or something. There are also one or more small "ships patch's" on most pages. Clicking the patch will send you back to the previous page. The one on the home page will send you to the top of the page. The ships patch within the top "big" logo will also send you back to the home page from any other page. There are also "little blue up arrows" on some pages (like this page). Selecting one takes you back to the top of the page. There also may be a "Menu" in a box on the right side of a page which will take you to the spot on the page the topic is located.
There are links on the home page to request the Shipmate Directory and Newsletters (for Active Members only). The links will bring up an email request form to the HPRA president. (These items are no longer available on the Yahoo Group as the group has been disbanded.)
Some items you will see, like the "Membership Form", are in "PDF" format. Your computer will need to have a PDF reader, like "Adobe Reader " or similar software installed in order to access them. If you do not have a reader installed, you can get one from here [Link to] "ADOBE READER". This will provide you with the latest version. It is sometimes installed in conjunction with other software. PDF's on this site should open in a new browser window or tab, depending how your browser is set to handle the request, and will not have a "return to previous page" button (like the ones you see below). Most all modern computers will have one installed by default. The "Edge" browser in Windows 10 (and maybe Win 8/8a) will open PDF's
The Hugh Purvis web site is open to the WorldWideWEb and is updated often to reflect the latest information. As new information develops on future reunions or anything else important to you, it will appear on the site. If you have something you would like to see, let us know. Make the Hugh Purvis website one of your favorites and check it often. If you feel you would like to write something for the site, please do just that and we will make arrangements to present it. Also, please get the word out to anyone you think should know about us. Remember, this site is for you and is maintained by one of your shipmates at no cost other than what we pay the service provider.
One of the best ways to share your own photos is to have a free account of your own on one of the photo sharing sites. We actually use one or two for some of our photos. Here is a list of some good ones...
If you do not have your own photo site, there are a several methods you can use to send photos for our "PICTURE GALLERY" and Slideshows and Albums. If you have only a few, you can email them to the webmaster (link below). This is good for up to 3 photos at a time. They are sent as attachments in your email. The Help link in the email form explains how. You can also get the real email address from the latest HPRA directory. Look inside the cover page for it. If your photos are on your PC, a few can be emailed using the contact link at the bottom of all pages. If you have a large number, they can be written to a CD or DVD or put on a "Thumb Drive" and sent via USPS (Thumb Drives will be returned if requested). Email the webmaster for the address or see your directory. If you only have a hard copy of your photos and cannot or do not want to scan them, you can send them via US Mail to me. If this is your choice, email the webmaster and he will provide you his snail- mail address.
