Well, there you go. I only spend about an hour and a half, and I found a
NUMBER of the people I was looking for, and a couple that I didn't KNOW I
was looking for. And, I also got the name and address of the submitters of
that information, so that I can check, and get additional information.

On the other hand, I have been trying to find out my grandmothers NAME for
about 10 years... Don't know why we have FAMILY, as they don't know, or
won't tell, and I have failed everytime I have tried.

I bought the Family Tree Maker, receiving about 10 CDs full of information.
Also logged onto their search site. Spent WEEKS looking for people I know.
Never found one.. So, I guess THEY should get their dbs off the net, as

But, I have corresponded with a number of individuals who got a LOT of
information off their database... some good, some not.

Keep looking, you might even find YOURSELF on there, someday :-))
