More HELDT
Posted by: Jeanie Stout (ID *****9503) Date: August 09, 2003 at 19:10:05
In Reply to: Re: HELDT by Fred Held of 338

Thank you I think I got more information since I last posted on the HAND and HELDT ancestors.
Yes I think I fixed the Two Anna Hand problem?
My CD does that some times when I am trying to enter information from one family to another.
Do you have any thing more you can share on these ancestors?
Jeanie
