Seventies: :}

alt: That thing I posted the other day on the LaForce woman.... she would be a 6th great-grandmother and had 5 siblings... she had 54 children & one of her grd-daughters had 16 children... so how many descendant from that branch almost 250 years ago could I have that I know nothing about.

Hotlanta: wow

alt: not 54 children, but 5 LOL

Seventies: I was going to say, OMG lol

Hotlanta: whew

vkn: Double whew

alt: what a relief, huh vkn LOL LOL
