Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I just found this forum, so I don't know if you are still interested. My family (Mabus) is from South Carolina and there is another listed in Charleston I believe. I have the the Mabus family book, if I can be of help. It is quite thorough.
