If you have ever looked at the 460 page subject reference book, you would quickly realize that a GREAT DEAL OF WORK went into this labor-of-love publication! Most copies of this book that I have seen, are well-worn and probably won't be around in another 100-200 years...

I'm told that the author Ross Smith is no longer alive. I've also been told that a recording volunteer of his (Wayne Bratcher) might be. After 2 years of searching, I have yet to find Wayne.

Before this wealth-of-knowledge (and me) are forgotten with the passing-of time, I would love to preserve this information in the GenWeb Tombstone Inscription Project Archive. If this information can be preserved electronically, it should be available for eternity.

Before I would consider working on this labor-of-love project, I would want to make contact with everyone who was involved with the recording and publishing of this book. This is where I need help!

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THIS BOOK AND ITS AUTHOR & HIS RECORDING VOLUNTEERS?
