Gaye, I do hope you read this and respond, NICELY! I give up on trying to turn things around. Yes, I know Jeff K (in Chicago) He wrote an email to here (this site) to let you people know just what you may be doing. He's got a heart of gold and so have the rest of them. As GOD is my witness, I had to find out who was doing and saying such bad things. Perhaps I was going at it the wrong way. For that I'm sorry. I love my family dearly and this includes all the Kranigs. I have NO immediate family left, so I'm wanting to find ALL the rest! This is tearing me up, that a family such as this has "hate"!!! I'd give my eyeteeth to know why!!! I kinda feel sorry for myself maybe. I can't seem to divide any of the family up. It hurts so bad Gaye. Jeff, both Marge's, Lee, Ben and all the rest up north are my family too! I won't hurt them and I won't hurt any of the rest either, NOT intentionally, anyway!!! If you want to hurt me, do so!! Please don't hurt anyone else. As far as me wanting information, YES!! I need to find info on my grt, grt grndfather . Joseph Kranig. For GODS sake, is that going to hurt any of you to tell me that!??? Is it so secretive, you gotta keep it to yourselves?? I don't want any family secrets!! Just info for MY tree!!!! I'd like to pass it on to MY CHILDREN!!! I'm so sorry. I can't believe this is happening! What have I got myself into? You know, Tom K was suppose to help me with this, but never got around to it. I'm sorry over and over!!!Take care and blessings to you and yoursJudy (a lost Kranig)!!! PS: I'm NOT asking you to trust me!!! You don't know me!! I'm asking for help with my family tree!!! That's all!!!!
