This is some advice I have to all who are putting in inquiries on message boards.
Please, Please, Please when you make an inquiry about someone you are searching, whether living, deceased...whatever..include anything you know about that person or persons. NAMES ARE NOT ENOUGH !!! At least not if you want the proper help. If at all possible, with the names of your people you are researching, include
1. Full Middle Last Name of Person(S)
2. Dates of A) birth B)Death C)Marriage
3. Places that events took place.
4. Names of parents and/or siblings
Even a GUESS would be VERY HELPFUL to someone who may have info !
But names are not enough!!! This is by no means criticism but this is very needed advice to a lot of you who do not include enough. There are thousands of people with the exact names you all are looking for.
I have researched my Ayala's for a long time now and let's just say I help people understand how to go about doing theirs (family history) too.
P.S. you DO NOT HAVE TO include ALL 4 things I listed but at least ONE of those things might be helpful.
