I was doing some research on my wifes family in the BUDD family forum, although her ancestors spelled it BUDDE. I had a few queries out there, and within a few months I hooked up with someone who had the same BUDDE's in the family tree. They ended up sending me a family photo of my wifes gg-grandparents from the 1890's. My wifes mother and grandmother were very happy to get a chance to see that photo. I would have never been able to make the connection without GENFORUM.
