Debra Morton who previously & graciously volunteered to "actively" search for and read headstones at the Crystal Lake Cemetery in Ellington will no longer be able to perform this service as she has moved out of the area. If you have recently submitted a request to her that remains unanswered, she wants to offer her apologies as she has been off-line and busy with her move.

Thank you Debra for your years of service to the
researchers of Ellington!!!!

Got the "Brick Wall" Blues??

So, you have searched & searched and that ancestor refuses to come to the fore-front and remains as elusive as the day that he vanished from his last known location. You are beginning to think that he is an alien from another world...that he changed his name to escape the law...that he took off on a grand adventure and was never seen or heard from again. Well, maybe, but more than likely not. Someone...somewhere has just that clue that you need to continue your scale that "brick wall" so that you may move ahead (or back as I call it in the world of genealogy.) So...let others help you in your quest for that "elusive one" by submitting a query.
