Glad the posting was helpful. It's very rewarding when the posting can help nail down the whereabouts of our "post-living" relatives. It's also great fun to give a general feel of what life May have been like during the time period. Many May written to me off line and expressed their thanks for the posting and I truly enjoy and appreciate that. Good luck with your search. Vickie
