Thanks for your response. I've been researching for 30+ years and am familiar with census records, etc. and I appreciate your notes.Perhaps they will be of help to someone else who reads this.
However, I think there is a misunderstanding of what I want.
My early people were from Virginia. I have much info but have not made a definite link to parents/siblings of my gggrandparents.In looking at microfiche at one of the LDS libraries, I ran off records for Browns and Thurstons and compared reference numbers for those submissions.I noticed a pattern of one or two particular numbers which seemed to amount to a linkage of certain Browns,especially, and one Thurston, my Thurston.These lead me back to "a book that cannot leave the temple." I need someone who, if I send those papers with my supposition as to relationships, can access the actual records within the temple so I can determine if my suppositions as to relationships are true.Hope this helps.
