Thank you for your kind comments. It is great to hear when the message board has been instrumental in assisting someone with their family history research.
I too know what a great joy it can be when you make a breakthrough, often after years of fruitless searching for an elusive ancestor.
Pehaps your experience will encourage other people to use this, and other message boards to assist them in their family research. They are a valuable aid in helping people to share their mutual interests.
Everyone is welcome.
