"Members-Who we are, and who we seek" This board is for all of the members to say what families they are working on, what locations/reservations they are searching, and what time period. We could also mention specific people or documents we are looking for. A registry of what everybody is researching, that way we could more easily help each other and more easily find other people researching the same families. We will also be able to see who the experts are in certain families.
