Thanks, Glenn for asking. Yes I did contact Sister Ella. Yes, she is retiring soon and they are not taking any more inquiries until after the first of the year, if then. She referred me to a woman who does research professionally. She sent me some info (with an attachment that I could not open) about her services. I have not yet had a chance to get back to her. She seemed really nice. Maybe that will work out.I bought a new house last week and so now will be all involved in moving our family and the dogs to the new place. Will not get much genealogy done during that time. Thanks for the referral, I wish I had asked a long time ago!!. Regards, Laura .
