Before you go to the Forum to post or chat, you may want to check out this page.
I'm putting together a list of documents I've accumulated over the years that either doesn't pertain to my family directly or I just didn't have room for on other pages. I thought they might be worthy of sharing, however, as they may be of use to someone else. Unfortunately, I just recently thought of doing this, and I have deleted many documents off my hard drive that should have been put on this page.
If you have any miscellaneous data you would like to share, just e-mail me and I'll add it to the list (and give you acknowledgment, of course).
