Thanks Brenda. How kind of you to be helping others with this work. I applaud your efforts and hope you will long continue!
A little note. If you are regularly helping people to connect with their families via research and help forums, you'll want to bear in mind that it can be difficult to draw out the relevant facts from the person you are helping, but you can persist and probe, because it is essential. It's so hard to know how much to say and what not to say, isn't it? I know I find that to be true. The link below is an excellent discussion (and humorus and fun as well) showing how to frame a query. I read all the information in the website as soon as I found it, learned something but also enjoyed the writing style.
Now here we have the siblings of John Wesley McCoy, and the family information supports the census record that was found. Good news! There are many many McCoys, and this verification is important.
I am now leaving for some days so please do not have Mindy contact me by private email. She could post a separate new thread in the forum, referencing this thread (post the url), stating that the persons in question are living/may be living, and asking for replies therefore through email.
Once she has a reply or replies through email (and I hope she will!) then she should return to this forum to reply to her own post, saying the information was received, so that other volunteers do not "re-do" the work.
The 1940 census is now being transcribed (yeah!), so she might learn more if she waits for the transcription to be completed before posting (since she is looking for recent family). You'll know best how to advise her.
Please give my warmest regards to Mindy, and good luck in the hunt.
