To all of our "patrons" to this site, I wish you a safe and bountiful Thanksgiving. As a side note: This is one of the best times to gather family information. Ask those older generations questions NOW, while you are still blessed to have them with you. You might want to start it out with something simple, such as "How did you spend Thanksgiving when you were a child"? (With whom?, where?, etc.) If they were born in another country, find out the name of the ancestral village/town they were born, lived? Get the spelling! Video tape them if possible. Make some memories. . .

Thank you for your contributions, whether it was a transcription, a referal, historic information, or answering someone on the message boards. They are truly acts of genealogical kindness and are very much appreciated. THANK YOU! Denise
