Thanks for the update. It looks like the universe gave you a reward with the
"dream project" that came in after your generous donation of time to the
auction. I am also not surprised at the excitement of the winner who
obviously had something in mind when he bid on your services. That brings me
to a new thought: for those who are contemplating this in the future:
perhaps using a blank family group sheet and pedigree chart as part of the
auction package will facilitate information exchange or at least show the
winner that what they need to provide.
