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 did email Darryl English, as you suggested, but he hasn't replied yet.
Maybe you would know the answer to this: how does one find the birth/death certificate for an ancestor, if you're not precisely sure when or where he was born or died? For instance, using the information you sent me on my ancestors, all I know about my great-grandfather Elias Zane is that he was born in 1858; no idea where, or when and where he died. I do, however, have the exact date and place that married my great-grandmother. Eli Leslie? Only that he was born in 1840. His mother, Hannah, is buried in the Huron Cemetery in KC. I guess maybe I should start with my father and grandfather; THEIR death certificates I can get right here in San Bernardino.
