Tammy, I don't have information on your family, but you will always want to include more information in your subject line than just "family". Everyone is looking for family. I want to see information like "Maria Lyman, b. 1838 Erie Co., PA" Then I will know it's information I might need or have something to share. I don't waste my time clicking on ambiguous subject lines like "family". I did this time just to share that suggestion with you. There might be gobs of people out there with information to help you, but most people will pass over messages with a subject line that is too vague.

Good luck!
