I have had so much success in finding the elusive relations on fag. Enjoy genealogy on my trees, and helping others. I see this as a fantastic tool. Happy to transfer by fag guidelines to those who cherish them, except my family. I have worked on my family history since a teen, primarily from paper trails and research, and tips from many friends. Wishing you all many victories!

And still they can allude me, but when I help someone, or find the details myself, there are no words for how great a feeling this is.
