bob of york-my reply to Caroline should come by today sometime re info on
doc.In it I mention how I had 13 members ,of which 9 got handled. I sent in
a medium size contrib as I put all names and dates on an excel spreadsheet
so they wouldnt have to transcribe but they did anyway.They never commented
on the amount contributed.
I sent request in about 2-3 months after they were listed on GGG,of which I
am a very satisfied member-great newsletter,great translation service,and
great CD lending lib,the last two @ reasonable cost .I also thought they
would be inundated as it was new but it took the usual several weeks,not
like some of the state/federal agencies.Possibly its grown since then but
I'm sure you are not in for a 6 month wait
by the way,Bob,from your email address,I believe you listed a message here
in the last 48 hours regarding hahns you were trying to connect up.Nothing
familiar to me;however, I do have a Henry Hahn in NY/NJ who married my
relative Dorothea Hemmer.Any such connection turn up in your research.
