I am a registrar of our D.A.R. Chapter- "roadblocks" ARE very frustrating but like all the other replys to your frustration, I too, agree... keep it going out there, you never know when you'll get a "hit". I help our prospective members find their rev ancestors and the message boards are invaluable to me ( and they are FREE!) DO NOT QUIT , PLEASE! Chin up ! You are the person, the missing link that is also missing a link to thier family search- we are all related to each other somehow. I found my cousin after 40 yrs thru the message boards- she turned around are mailed me my family tree book she made! This is her hobby- she is 80 ! And traced me back to my 57 gr gr grandfather OLE KING COLE - SEE???? You are doing great- keep it up !
