  1. This web site truly has all the information and facts I needed about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  2. Amazing things here. I am very happy to see your post. Thank you so much and I’m having a look ahead to contact you.

  3. Hello, Thank you for the helpful video! Do you have new links for Georgia and Alabama? Neither seem to be working. I tried going directly to Family Search but the Wiki only listed file numbers for Alabama and had no data for Georgia. I am not sure where to search now for this vital info.
