    Well, that is, if you've eventually successful.

    Otherwise, it can be really frustrating, eh?

    Tenaciousness and genealogy are a good mix!

    Good work.

      In this case I was lucky. The hard part was finding the passenger manifest; after that it fell into place pretty quickly. But I've got a big list with (literally) a couple of hundred brick walls, or at least missing pieces of information.

      I have yet to delve into the Austrian census materials or the R.C. Church records for Eva's home area. LDS does have microfilms. But other things, especially in $&!#*(@ New York City and early New England, have been very hard to track down.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
