Thanks for sending the GEDCOM file. I'm going to try and send you a co py ofmy GEDCOM. I've not had an opportunity to verify all of the info on thi s fileas yet. I've set up individual sheets (7 binders so far) to start verification. I'm currently working on Illinois websites to confirm marrige/death records. Will then go on to other states. Do you by cha nceknow of any Missouri websites that allow an individual to verify infor? W hatI've found so far is just addresses to request info.
Feel free to share any info I send to you. I'd appreciate your passing m yname/address along to anyone else who is working on Willard/Gooding sea rches.My infor includes material from Dean Glenn and Daryl Matthews (Texas) a ndLarry Wilkey (Illinois). All three have indicated no problem with shari ng ofinformation. We won't get very far if we don't want to share. I have a cousin in Illinois who has done a lot of research. However, doesn't app earthat she wants to share. Oh well.
