Hi Suzilad,

Your very welcome.

You can search for public tree entries - and contact owners of public trees - on www.mundia.com -  which is a sister site to Anc.

Sandra

I am amazed that he ended up in Alabama somewhere different for the family tree.

Just discovered this afternoon another ancestor was born in Corfu in c 1849 wonder if that is why I love holidaying in Greece so much.


Thanks again  you are a star  ;D
