From: Lyn Legere <lynleg -at- bu.edu> Subject: Re: [WHITNEY-L] Another try. Date: Tue, 30 Jan 2001 22:26:47 -0500 References: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Dear Lois, Unfortunately, I have no info to give you, but can relate with the difficulties of finding information for the early 1860's - my ggrandmother was also born in that time frame and I've been searching for more than 10 years for her. The time frame is just a little before most towns/states required records and a bit after the majority of early vitals that seem to all end around 1850. So, I empathize with you and wish you luck.
