I am sending you all I have in hopes that it may also help
someone else.

I do not have a Gedcom file or a program. Atleast the Family Gathering
program I have I don't have much in it. And none on this family. I am
trying to learn to use it.

This info was typed in Page Maker 5.0 and then Pasted into a Mailer.
It did not tranfer into my mailer  lined up so I will attemp to
straighten it out.If It does not come to you straight, Please forgive
me. That happens in mailing a lot and I do not know what to do about it.
I have NetScape 3.1. Internet program.

Please help with these families if you can.

Thanks so much.  Please mail me Privately.
Send me the  address for Sellers list.
