At the 2006 Barlow-Cooley Reunion in Ulverstone I released the first version of a family CD-ROM. Tony Hope - DVDThe new edition for 2010 didn't quite get done so perhaps next year!.

After the 2008 family reunion, Tony Hope produced a fabulous DVD containing footage from a variety of family reunions held since 2000.
