Are all Allen families as secretive as mine? I have over twenty Allen names and have sent out over sixty messages on this type of search sites, yet I haven't received one message back on any relatives. I,m over sixty years old, and know very little about computers, but does prior family mean nothing at all to todays generation? I would have loved to have been able to trace my people back,but I guess this only means something (after the fact).Good luck to all on Your Search. Dave.
