Re: I'm at a stand still
In Response To: I'm at a stand still ()

Cynthia I know were you are coming from on this one, because in a lot of ways I too have that same problem...seems as though many of the strangers become more interested in the family research more so than the family. Yet, in my case it is like this: when I first began this quest, a lot of relatives seemed to be pleased, and they gave me the impression that they too wanted to find out, but as I got into deeper researches and now able to get to beginning a book, many of those relatives either back away or simeply say that I should not get into things that becomes a Pandora's Box. One lady relative, very religious lady, said that God did not want us to go back into our histories that we should leave well enough alone. Sometimes Cynthia I do think I should just give the whole thing up, but I am like this detective or private eye who has to keep on the case until at least sometimes are solved. Keep on Cynthia as many of this board members tell me, and they know how I often shout out "I Quit" or "I Give up". Peace and blessings, Joseph
