I "Asked A Librarian" about my CHINN!
I was looking for information on my great great grandfather WILLIAM CHINN from Va.
He was born around 1840.
A poster here heard of a William Chinn from Prince William County and gave me a number to call for information.
That led to a website for the Prince William Library and in one day, I got the following reply from their "Ask a Librarian" link.
...Our files show that William Wallace CHINN was born in February 1959, and he was alive in 1920 but unmarried. The names of the children of Thomas and Mary Jane Chinn are: Henry,James, Oscar,John, William Wallace, George L., Robert L. and Fielder.
I was so appreciative!
Many libraries allow you to "Ask One Question" but this one was excellent!
Try it for those brickwalls.
