Anne, Thank you so much for your newsy reply. You are fortunate that you can trace back that far. I have looked at many histories since I spoke to you last and have already run into all the people you have mentioned here.It will lock together one day and when it does it will be the largest GEDCOM file on the internet. Thank you again, John D. Bartleson Jr. Please visit my site "The Bartlesons of Grand Chain".
