Thanks Mary! I will definitly contact the person you mention. Unfortunately I live in Lashburn, Saskatchewan, Canada and am not in the vacinity of Portland otherwise I might have taken you up on the 'inpection'.
A person by the name of Marcel Mindrescu contacted me as well last week. He says he can help me in Romania with my family history bceause he does geneology research in his spare time. You wouldn't have happened to have heard of him or know of someone who does? I'm interested if he can help me out but I would like a little background on him before I give him some of my family history information. Maybe I'm a little paranoid but I like to cover my bases.
