Hello fellow Hiers. I am a novice, but I've just finished reading all 166 postings and would like to know more about my family line. My father was Philip Venice Hiers born May 15, 1925 in Summerfield, Fla. His father was Philip James Hiers born around 1900, birthplace unknown to me. Isn't the spelling of Philip, with one "L" a bit unusual and does anyone know if this was a spelling of a particular line of Hiers? I know I don't have much to contribute to your discussions; and many of you appear to be pros at the genealogy thing. However, any help you might provide would me greatly apreciated. Thanks.
