Thanks so very much. I really do not know if this is the correct family. I would think there`s a very good chance of it. How do I get to the geneforum (the zike board) you mentioned ?. I really don`t know what I am doing as you can tell. My mother died of bone cancer in 1997 and I promised her I would (if for no other reason medical) search for her family. She really had little info to go by. All records that her adopted parents had mysteriously came up missing!!!I thank you SO much for this info, any suggestions for me ? I live in TN so it`s hard to really do much from here.
