All comments, corrections, suggestions, ideas, positive or negative, are welcome.  I am particularly interested in correcting any erroneous dates (birth, marriage, death) or family name mis-spellings that the documents may contain.    I have quite a large data base of names (well over 10,000) but also have many missing names and would appreciate any submissions of such missing names and dates.     

I would also like to enlarge the photo gallery on the website.  If anyone has any old family photographs, and they are stored on your computer or you have the ability to scan them onto your computer, please email them to me.   If you have only hard copies, you can mail them, and I will scan them and return them to you.  Click on  the link below for my mailing address.
