What the heck is McGowanLand, anyway?

This site is maintained by and for our family in order to share information that is of little or no value to anyone else (and maybe not even to us). We all belong to the McGowan family, but some are not McGowans. Most hail from the San Francisco Bay Area, though we have been joined by others from such far flung and exotic locales as Valencia, Santa Fe, and Cottage Grove.
