I'm proud to live on the "Franklinstraat" in The Hague, Holland. Yes, thanks, also in this time in Europe, there are so many people who know him, also from his writings and when he was staying in Paris. And his humor. And Science. And he was serious interesting in people and how they live together and their life. He was a man of freedom and new ideas, freedom for the mind and mankind. Rare. Actually. Benjamin Franklin was a llright.

As an adult, I really enjoyed reading about our history from the viewpoint of a teenager. I read anything I get my hands on about Benjamin Franklin. That said, I had no idea "Temple" existed. Thank you for sharing the Franklin Family with us. I am passing this along to my grandchildren. In particular, my grandsons will love it. Thank you again.

Congressman today need to revisit who Ben Franklin was and what he stood for especially when it came to standing up for Americans.

what an awesome site! but - we were puzzled today with our bottles, that when blown the emptier bottles were lower, but when tapped, the emptier bottles were higher - what's happening there?

Quiero conocer más de la vida y del pensamiento de Ben Franklin, para aprender como puedo ser más útil al mundo que me tocó vivir

I'm trying to find a link between Ben Franklin's Uncle and the Hudson family. One of his uncles (perhaps Ben) is related to Lucy Ann Hudson and Henry James Hudson.

Ben always got the most out of flying a kite.
Richard "Dick Kent" Withers [09-06-2012]

As a carriage driver-tour guide in the Philadelphia Independence National Park I am always able to turn to 9 out of 10 Ben when a detour or other event takes me off my normal route and into an area with little to speak of. Mr Franklin was an amazing man and if I needed too I'm certain I could fill an hour just on him. Thanks for this site for adding to my knowledge of this incredibly complex man.

doug nolf, born erie pa [08-07-2012]

Franklin has been role model for me for many years a book about Franklin called "The Art of Virtue"really captured me for Ben. Many quotes are useful today with all a "smart phones" and other electronic gadgets available for sale and "small" monthly fees for services. Ben says "Small leaks sink Ships" and budgets I might add.

I'm 66 now. I was a Director of NY State Young Americans for Freedom from 1969 - 1972. We elected Jim Buckley on row C only in 1970. ..and we helped set up a guy by the name of Ronald Reagan to eventually become president. We dearly miss Bill Buckley... There's a guy in Texas who needs your help now - his name is Ted Cruz... God Bless You...

This was better. Ben F. was our most interesting forefather, the Steve Jobs of his time. Kids today don't learn about him. Too bad. Or do they??

One of the first things I found out about my ancestry, is that Benjamin Franklin is my 7th great grand uncle.

Mike Noriega [06-06-2012]

Enjoyed your quickie Franklin biography. Please include something about his amorous adventures in Paris. And, please note that most of the "Declaration" was actually penned by Thomas Paine, a very key figure in early America. This has been nicely documented by some commentators, some years ago.
