Subject: [ROOTS-L] Searching My Roots
Date: Mon, 10 Mar 2003 15:22:59 -0600


I have done genealogical research for many years, but just recently subscribed to several of the mailing lists on RootsWeb. I have been trying to figure out the best way to use them---don't know if this is it, but I'll give it a try. I am posting the surnames that I am researching with some identifying material. I will also post each surname to its separate list, but want to include all here. By the way, I will be willing to look through my records and try to help anyone out there who needs help---I've been there (and still am on some lines) and always appreciate help from others.

So here goes:
