Bill, File received and forwarded to the "approving" committee of Mother and her sisters. It has to pass their tests. Frankly,I have that "I feel it in my bones" feeling about this family. It took me 20 years of Jester research to get the Seal of Approval as a researcher from Mother.
My printer doesn't work properly so it was hard to read the gedcom thru the program, But your text file made it very easy for me. Thanks so very much.
Mother and the Internet are not on speaking terms and her computer wasn't Y2K compliant. But my brother lives not too far from her and will make sure she gets a printed copy of the files, your and Emery's.
Thank you again. I will add what I haveabout the descendents ofWilliam Thornton and Elizabeth Stell.
