I recently signed up for your service and I love it, especially with all the added items. I am referring this website to all my friends who do genealogy! - Linda J.

Thank you so much for this, i've searched and searched for info on my great uncle, and yours is one of the very few sites where he's mentioned. Yours has more detail than any other. - Anita S.

I love your site, esp. the small newspaper collection and the search of external sites such as findagrave.com. - Mary H.
