I have found out that these Message Boards will become "read only" during September 2014. So, if you want to .respond. to an old posting by a researcher, you need to do it this summer. Or, if you want to post new or updated KIDDER information, you need to do it this summer.
I do not like this decision. Over the past 14 yrs. I have found or received important information about my family-tree. And, because of these Boards, I have .found. cousins, distant cousins, and step-cousins. Even if they had found my postings from 5 yrs. before.
.. Always looking for more information on William HANNAH and Eliza RITCHIE who married in Glasgow in Dec. 1854/Jan. 1855.They were both born in Co. Donegal, Ireland.With 2 babies, they migrated to MA in 1857.
