You are most welcome.And please thank your parents for me: they seem to have raised a most polite, well educated young lady.
If I may offer one more piece of advice, since you seem to be enthusiastic about what you're finding about your family history: NOW is the time to do this.Take a MP3 or tape recorder and go talk to the oldest members of both sides of your family. They won't be with you forever, and when they're gone... you'll have missed your chance (like I did!).Listen to their stories and their lives, you'll learn SO much.And you'll have it recorded for when you're their age and can't remember all that stuff.
Genealogy is fascinating.It got me interested in history, something I detested back in school.Suddenly, when you find one of your ancestors was involved in some historical event or situation, you want to learn more about it.And more and more and more.As a part-Cajun, I was always interested in why they came to Louisiana - and found out.Stuff like that...
Anyway, best wishes with your search.The Clayton Library is a wonderful resource right there in Houston (down by Main and Montrose on Caroline Street).People there may be able to help you even more.
