NOTE: Hello Genealogists and family et al,
I've been away from this site fulfilling other obligations. First and foremost, I want to thank those of you who have left tokens on my sites, or offered suggestions of corrections for me. I appreciate the time you take to do so. My memorials were created as a 'cyber-legacy' to honor my beloved family and friends. I've noticed that some of my information has been 'borrowed' to use on other sites. I simply ask that you show me some courtesy and ask first, before you use the information. I spent a lot of time on these and would appreciate the acknowledgement that it was "I" who conducted the research. Best Regards, Deborah 30 May 2016
