Subject: a little story about this list!
Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 02:53:17 EDT
I want to tell a little story....
I have subscribed and unsubscribed from other rootsweb lists because I didn't
find them particularly helpful. This is the MOST INVOLVED, INTERACTING list
going! The effort and commitment of everyone really shows.
I'm sitting on a mountain out in Albuquerque, which makes doing research in
Clermont Co.. a tad difficult at times. But, not to fret.
Vonne has checked stuff at the library for me. Tinamarie volunteered to copy
a document for me at the Court House. Jillrick, up in Alaska, has sent me
pictures of my Burdsall connections (and she isn't a Burdsall hunter) Not
only that, but from another list, she noticed someone was hunting the same
folks I was hunting, and sent them my email address. A COUSIN FOUND! The
cousin is hunting some other folks, on another line of hers, not mine. That's
okay...I knew I had seen the names come thru on the list, so I went to
Jerilyns' site and sent the 'new cousin' the names of those researchers.
To Jerilyn, and everyone else who is putting in so much time here, let me
say...THIS LIST IS WORKING! FOLKS ARE CONNECTING! Thanks everyone, for the
efforts you are putting in.
