SPECIAL THANKS TO FAG VOLUNTEERS. MY GOAL ON FAG IS NOT FOR VOLUME,BUT TO CONNECT AND ADD INFORMATION THAT MANY OF YOU MAY USE. IF YOU LOOK AT MY BIO AND MY CONTRIBUTIONS FOR A SHORT TIME IS BECAUSE I HAVE A VERY LARGE PERCENT OF INFORMATION IN MY DATABASE THAT HELPs ME MAKE THESE CHANGES/CORRECTION/ADDITIONS. I DO THIS FOR YOU FOLKS. LONG AFTER I AM NOT A MEMBER YOU WILL HAVE THIS INFORMATION. IT WILL NOT BE HIDDEN IN SOME DATA IN A COMPUTER. I WANT TO HELP ALL I CAN. I AM 84years OLD AND I KNOW THAT TIME COULD RUN OUT FOR ME SO IF I SEEM A LITTLE ANXIOUS, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU CAN USE WHATEVER I HAVE AT HAND TO HELP. I DID NOT HAVE THIS HELP WHEN I STARTED OUT AND I GOT DISCOURAGED MANY TIMES AND GAVE IT UP. DON'T EVER GIVE UP. JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW. Items such as photos etc have been in my collection. They were obtained from the many many families I have visited and people who knew what I was doing with them. I have spent several thousands of dollars over the years, but not once asked for a penny in exchange. This is a Labor or Love for me. I hope I never lose sight of that love. If I do, I will just quit rather than hinder others. I just wish some of the members who hold on to their contributions who are not family related would let go and let someone manage those contributions. There are members who just get on FAB long enouigh to get whatever information suits them and then they just let go and will not answer requests. Shame on you. What makes you want to do this. Is it ego or just to see how many you can manage. We should be like family and contribute to each other. Now, that irritates me.
PS. I am now 85 years old.
