If you will give the details: the whos, whats, whys, how you found out, etc,
so I can speak intelligently about it, I will be happy to assist you.
And Mr. Scism, what office did you contact? A state branch, or National?

OK, Julia, you're in charge of ascertaining their interest in this.
Let us know what they say.
And there I rest my case. Never mind their explanation - just tell us if
they are interested.
But the fact that some overly ambitiously enterprising corporation tries
something doesn't mean it will hold up in court. Ancestry is sezing so
much, so quickly, much of it is plainly trial balloons.
History is full of long successions of corporations, and even government
entitites with more honest intent, trying things and getting told, in the
words of a former professor of mine, "uh-uh. You can't do that."
Yours, Dora Smith
