    Renate, I really enjoyed your “We Were Supposed To Be NEALs:” presentation! AWESOME!
    I have used this technique to find my great grandfather and some of his family members as slaves, that was an easy one. I need to add on some of your detail kind of work to dig even deeper on that line and also on other branches of my tree.
