You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Does the other thread say where he was from?



Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

The comment about reading the thread was not directed to you, mateer1987.

Since you are new to this I'm going to make a few suggestions to make things easier for both us and you.
1) don't keep inserting quotes into your replies. When quoting a message with one or more quotes in in it very quickly becomes more difficult to read
2) give us complete details to save us from wasting time. For example, you said Joseph born 1910 but exact date is important and should be mentioned
3) online trees can be useful to find clues but all details need to be verified (my last post gave example of Edward Mateer having 2 wives named Annie both mother of same two sons which makes no sense)

I responding to hallmark, not you, mateer1987, I posted the link because you are new and wouldn't know doing so could be useful.
