If you have not already, get a library card for the county that you are in... most public libraries have free access to Ancestry at the library. Plus Heritage quest (Census records) that you can probably get at home online thru the library portal.
RE: Photo for Mark Hopper Hi, How can you not read it? Is that you don't know hebrew or you need a closer shot? You do know that you can click on the picture and you can see a significantly larger view of it. I actually thought it was pretty good.
Genealogy Hi Hannah! Glad that you are interested in the genealogy! I'm more than happy to share whatever information I have but as you know, it's mostly on the Taylor side. If you would like a copy of my gedcom, just send your request to: email@example.com. Pat
