Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I live in Columbia, IL just south of Dupo, where Grandpa lives. He comes over all of the time, and when I told him I was doing some research into the family he immediately mentioned your name, and said that you were the one to talk to. He didn't know where you were living, however. Why don't you send you number, I know Grandpa would love to call you and I'd like to say hello as well. Actually, if you want you can send it to my e-mail address (it's down temporarily), and we can further correspond. Uncle Gary used to live in Belleville, but he retired from the electric company in Cahokia and moved to Warsaw, Missouri in the Ozarks. You're right, he is a non-communicator. He lived about eight miles from me for the better part of eighteen years, and I saw him about three times. And I've only seen Aunt Pat once, she lives in Cherry Hills, New Jersey, alive and well. So all of your cousins in your Uncle Al's line are still living. Grandpa will love to hear from you.
