Let me apologize for not following up on this.I just discovered last night that the second message I sent doesn't appear to have made it to the message board.The info in my database on Michael and Sophia is extensive enough that I am unable to post it here, it also includes a number of individuals who are likely still living, so I have privacy concerns.Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be more than happy to email you directly with my additional info!
