Thanks Christine -
My parents moved from EL Paso to southern VA in 2002. My mother still has not found the original copies of family data. I asked her to send the family Bible to William Pearl, Jr. while he was still alive, since there is now a William Pearl the fifth. I have always felt that family documents should follow the direct heirs. Pearl Lee inherited many items simply because he was the last child still living in Denver, and he had cared for his parents in their later years. Robin W. Yetter, Pearl's son, was not interested in the family documents. His sister, my mother, did not even know he had passed away until 5 years after his death. She was angry that he had picked through their parents estate first, and did not go by the dispersal list their father had made earlier.
When I took over as family historian, I converted all of the data to GEDCOM files and then posted them on several websites in case any family wanted to connect to them, and to share my research.
I have worked for several biographers as a research assistant, so I am very good at finding records, if they exist.
