There are so many wonderful people involved in genealogy on the internet that are willing to give assistance. I have always tried to help others in the belief that someone would help me in turn someday. That has certainly turned out to be the case, and I am thankful for the many many people who have assisted me. The kindness of strangers is heartwarming. We genealogists are a good bunch!
