Hi - I'm a volunteer genealogy researcher in Tennessee, and I've been working for several years with an out-of-state researcher who specializes in the Tennessee SHIRK lines.
I forwarded your query, and your related 04/23/2008 GenForum query, to this researcher, who is well-familiar with Henry SHIRK and his family of Loudon County and has extensive files and documentation on them.
This researcher would like to share information (privately) with you.
If you're interested, please contact me privately at:firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll try to arrange further contact.
