To all Posters, re: Rafuse,
Have been doing a lot of Rafuse research and have copied the above emails to my file. I will be glad to help anyone searching the Lunenburg Clan in exchange for some updated information that I can add to my existing files. I have a rather complete tree and will send it (or portions) if you request it privately at my email address.

Thank you for your message. Good to hear from another
another Rafuse! My father's family were of
Lunenburg County and I imagine we are
distantly related. Do you have the Rafuse
book? Many of my grandfather's relatives
went to the Boston area,too. I grew up in
Bridgewater and now live in RR#2 Lunenburg.
