Thank You

There is absolutely no way to do genealogy and family history research without the help and generosity of others. The massive jigsaw puzzle that is family history and genealogy cannot be put together without help from family, other researchers, and workers at the many and varied repositories and agencies genealogists utilize.

The following is a list of family members who have, over the years, been helpful in some fashion. To them, I am extremely grateful. I wish I could do or say more, however, all I have is my sincere appreciation and gratitude. I have tried to remember everyone and leave no one off the list, as every bit of information and every story is helpful, every bit.

If, after reading through this thank you list, you are interested in sharing a piece or pieces of the puzzle, I look forward to hearing from you! An asterisk by a name denotes someone who has since joined the rank of Ancestor.  ~~IMPORTANT: Names are listed in no particular or special order~~
