Hi CT, and Laurie,
Laurie, really liked your response....good tips..thx
Was looking to find cthomas and hopefully found u both..
I also may be related...hahaha....
cthomas last mo. looked up Francis Reynolds (married Start) and kids, philip (my grgrandfather) and jessie(no descendants I know of) recently
Are u part of Jessie Reynolds kin??? can share a bunch.
also there was ANOTHER jessie start in my line who married a collins (early 1900s) and moved to NY.
been away from genealogy for a while (personal probs) and am also an amateur.
gonna look up thomas and mcwhirter and briela?? and burke ny. or county nearby in my files. got lots of "living names" from that NY line who I havent contacted yet.
I dont have paid access to ancestry. but (with help from a 30th cousin, yep, 30th-link goes back to 1050's!, who does research for lots of folks free or dirt cheap) have amassed substantial records. If either of u are related would love to collaborate.
hope to hear firstname.lastname@example.org
