OMG, Dick Eastman. I just broke a brick wall with one of the links on this list! Can’t tell you how excited I am and how I can’t wait to tell my cousins that I found our Great-Grandmother. I read your newsletter all the time and have found some great information and hints on here. But reviewing this list you post regularly has proven so helpful. Thank you from a grateful reader!
