Might I also add that the writer should use proper grammar, that is:
1. Capitalize the first word of every sentence and every proper noun (a person's name, town, county, or state name).
2. Use punctuation. These are queries, not tweets, and you will get a better response if your query can be read, not deciphered.
3. Do not use all capitals, not all lower case letters. Either one has to be deciphered (see number 2 above).
Thanks for letting ME vent. I enjoy trying to solve genealogical mysteries, but I pass right over queries that are a pain to try to read.
Ted Pack has a website that also lists good instructions for writing a query:
