Very small world indeed.Yes, I am very muchacquainted with Edward Wilburn of Orange Co CA...And he is the VERY reason that I have this Patrick and other allied family info as it relates to Patricks. Ed came down from Orange Co and downloaned his files into my database...He had about 1400 names at the time.So this is the reason that I have all of these shared families entered.
But it was not until much much later, when I finally learned just how connected these other families were to my own Wilburns and their other allied families.In other words, Ed gave me a gift that I was not able to fully appreciate until I became more seasoned in reseach and thus gained some understanding of the importance of allied families in seeking clues.
Unfortunately, Ed is STILL not on line.And so it has been a long time since we have communicated.I once figured it out...Ed and I are something like fourth cousins, once removed.Something like that.
I understand what you mean about computers...After two years, I am still pretty dumb and do not know how to send gencom files....My own database now has over 8000 names.But that best that I can do is look up what I have and sent bits and pieces on.
Thanks for your e-mail address...and yes, indeed, lets share info.
