  1. Thank you Deb for the Award, it was very kind of you. I'm still hoping I can trace an ancestor to Maryland, because I know who I will turn to for help. And, congratulations on receiving yours from so many people.

  2. Thank you so much! I'm having a lot of fun passing it on.

  3. Congrats on your award....richly deserved.

  4. Thank you for nominating me, Deb. It's an interesting exercise to go through finding 15 new and interesting blogs, but I got there in the end.

    Best wishes,


  5. Thank you for thinking of me! :)
