MICHAEL, thanks.

 

Maybe there is more than one film #.

 

As members have extracted TWO other SELLERS families from Franklin Co, Pa that appear to be films from there?

 

Our LDS is open tomorrow and will try and contact them with names /numbers I have = they can probably help with more complete films, etc.

 

What is the last email you have for STEPHEN SELLERS?
 My last email was returned.

 

THANKS for helping and answering my questions.
