Thanks To

As always, thanks to familysearch.org for most of the information on this and all other pages on this site. Without familysearch.org in particular, their census records, I don't believe I could recover my information yahoo deleted from this website without reason in 2015. Since then, I have worked daily to restore what I lost. I can't say enough good things about the family search website. They are a real blessing.
