Jim, thanks. However, I have a problem as I don't know what state my ancestors lived in. My granddad and one sister lived in Washington state. But I can't find anything about the rest. I think if people wanted to disappear years ago, it was fairly simple. (Before social security numbers went in). Plus all of my older kin are deceased and they never wanted to talk about their ancestors. But I'll keep looking. Thanks again and good luck to you,Dave.
