Dr. Desjardins has said it well and we all owe him, and his staff,
a debt of gratitude for making our family history searches so much
easier. I, like anyone else, dislike finding discrepancies in data. But,
I am very encouraged by knowing that PRDH has a track record of
researching and correcting errors when they are found.
Keep up the good work.
