What people should understand is that when someone is helped, everyone gains. I have a lot of fun and learn more about our confusing Maine familiy. Family members are connected, and the WRG gets more archivable family information to share with visitors to the site who are searching for their Whitney roots. Also, hopefully Whitney reseachers will be stimulated to use the military records that our country has so fastidiously preserved to learn more about their ancestors. Civil War pension files are just the begining of the wealth of information stored in our country's military records. The tremendous improvements to the National Archives over the past few years, combined with other military records becoming more accessible via the Internet, make reseaching these records much less cumbersome. Take it from one who has been there when things were less accessible. Now, if Lori just wins the lottery, her Christmas will be complete! Merry Christmas ! to all.

Whitney, Lincoln, Maine Dear WRG: We HAVE to add Ken's name to the list of those WRG members who have been recognized for many, many contributions to assist other members. He is clearly our "resident expert" in the field of veterans records and is also an endless source of help for Maine material. Allan E. Green
