Thank you for all of the information that you have continuously offered
to fellow researchers.
This list is archived and searchable (so are other rootsweb lists &
boards) , hopefully you will be able to fill in some of the holes which
Search using your email address or name and all your posted messages
should come up.
I am sure you have sent far more than that in emails to folks!
My practical advice is to begin making a backup on an external hard
drive, sounds like a pocket type would suffice.(Replacing the old
version of your backup daily)
Wow. I don't think Paper (albeit years of research) is included in
insurance claims either. Not only man hours have been lost but the
value of those hours..an archival genealogist's wages for a year...
from what I know of your thorough research, upwards of 80,000 dollars!
You are welcome to anything I have, including any of the oop source
books which may have been lost.
Hadley. Dixon, etc. etc....sent in Pdf file chunks.
I sincerely feel for you.
Yours in friendship and loving service,
GREGG HADLEY DIXON ALLEN COX HOBSON etc.
