Sylvia, I have read your messages with great interest. You mentioned the data on the FTM cd. While I did not submit it to FTM, the data thereon was from my files. I gave a cousin in another line this information some 8 years ago or so. This was before the days of computer cds and the internet. You might imagine how surprised I was to find it first on the FTM cd and then on the internet. I even asked FTM to stop using it but they refused. Many people had helped me gather the information and I did not like the idea of all the data being put out without some recognition to these people. Now that some time has passed, I am glad it is out there because it may help someone find their roots. This has been my goal from the start.

My line is actually quite close to the line you are asking about. My line is William1740, William2, John3, Marine4, Edward5, Vernon6, Russell7. I have a lot of information on your line that came down from the William Anderson Fires line. I even have a picture of William Anderson when he was about 20 to 30 I guess. I will be happy to share the information I have if you will let me know what you need. A few years ago I put out a small newsletter with about 9 issues covering the Fiers/Fires family as we then knew it. As time went by others joined in and contributed their information and research to the point that we now have a good overview of the family, and many of the members from the past. If you will send me your snail mail address, I will see if I can find some extra copies of those newsletters to send you.
