Arlene, Arlene, Arlene, half the researcher!!! You have to be kidding me! I do thank you for your confidence in me and I absolutely believe the same sentiments for you and your capabilities. I've seen how you have tackled some very hard questions and come back with the right answers to many peoples quests.
I do think that we as lovers of genealogy offer little "nudges" to those who want to find their folks. However those little "nudges" need a little bit of help also in guiding others to get the joy we experience when we find our loved ones.
I came to AfriGeneas some years ago looking for help. Some who reached out to guide me are no longer here and some are. People like Vkn, Art,Selma, Regina, and Angela still amaze me. Those wonderful people instilled in me the need to help others on their journey. They gave me the tools I needed to help in my search. We need others to give back in that same vein Arlene and I sure appreciate you. So Thank You for all you do and I would be remiss if I did not thank others here who I have not named in this post that have given their time also. Thanks much!!!!
