Thanks for the links. I used to dabble in genealogy a bit for my mother before she passed a decade ago. It's amazing how much more info is online now compared to 10 years back.

thanks ... I'm not particularly interested in my family (I've got the records from my great grandfather coming over from Italy) ... but I am currently tracing the history of a home that I'm about to buy and it's prior owners
