  1. my wife and I are looking forward to the records for the early 1600,s and earlier our family’s came to the the new world in the early 1600’s and the late 1500’s.
    we know that those records are hard to read so we are waiting.

  2. Why is it necessary to enter credit card details when signing up for a FREE look up. This is suspicious and is a complete turn off to prospective customers.
