Pat, thank goodness for the family Bibles that most families had years ago! My parents' were in a house fire, years ago, that destroyed my dad's family's Bible. That, and a courthouse fire where my parents had records, just about ruined my chances of finding my family kin. I haven't had a lot of luck with my dad's family, but I have found a new cousin on my mother's side, that none of the family knew existed. With all the trash and bad things that people use computers for, it's good to know they do have a good use as well. Good luck on you're family research...Best Regards,Dave.
