It has been 5 years since I've had a chance to work on Abney family history.The last breakthrough was your connecting my "Bish" Abney to the rest of the US tree.
I was compliling some family info for a "new" Abney family that I met here in Panama City Beach, and found your posting.I am so sorry to hear about your home and records, but I am glad that you and your family made it to safety.
I hope to get together with some long lost Alabama cousins in the next couple of months, to share and gather information.In addition, I hope to spur my new acquaintance to reasearch his line.
Are you going to be able to continue with your family work?I know it's hard in the "evacuee" situation.(We have adopted many families here in Panama City)
