Seventies Soulchild: what are they looking for? or whom?

Selma: OH well....I will try see what I can come up with...

Seventies Soulchild: Almost in Canada.. lol

Selma: The 2nd letter had marriages of white folks back in the 1600's...I tried to explain what I needed, but pretty sure he doesn't understand

Seventies Soulchild: Maybe they don't even know what they're looking for.

Selma: Thats what I think...or he has found some info somewhere and is trying to connect the dots without understanding what he is looking at.

Seventies Soulchild: I don't know what to tell ya. . . best of luck to this person.

Selma: I will check and see if there is an AA group in that area..
