0h!  if we could only see the entire index we might be able to

hook-up" our Family tree to some of these, but some of these indexes are just too big to reproduce here. We all keep looking for something to connect us with somebody else, don't we? It is hard to get lonely when we have all these ancestors just begging to be found! It would have helped if they had not been too busy trying to improve their lifestyle, you know, "trying to live indoors and eat three meals a day." They just didn't know we would want so very much to find out more about them or they would have tried harder to leave more records! Keep looking, today may be the day you get lucky and find something out about an ancestor you didn't even know you had! Happy Hunting! Pat from YOGS
