I have written my Aunt Helen and Rose Mary about our exchanges at the request of my mother.They may be able to provide "fill in the blank" type information about Casper, since they were in their late 20's before he passed away.I have asked them to provide me with details like:What port of entry did they arrive at upon coming to America? What were Casper's brother's names (my mom said that 3 brothers came to the US together and that Casper stayed in Pittsburgh while the two other brothers went west)?Did any of Barbara's family come with her?Etc.
I had to snail mail it though (they don't e-mail and mom suggested that it would be better to have their hand written records for posterity's sake), so it will probably be a couple of weeks before I get anything back.I'll keep you informed.
I have been using work sheets to keep all my info safe but my electronic files need work.I am in the process of filling in siblings and dates on my Family tree maker on my home PC and on Ancestry.com.This will take me a while, but I should have it done by the time that Helen's and Rose Mary's response arrives. When I am done I will try to e-mail you my complete tree to date or get you access to my tree on line.
