Thank you very much for the information. I am hoping that others will post more of the missing family pieces, or just their surnames missing, as well. It it helpful to know that you may very well be doing the proper research, and looking in the proper place, but the records were indeed destroyed. And helpful too to know there are alternatives, costly alternatives, but there are some. Getting creative with RI records has proved to be absolutely necessary.
