No family researcher works alone.  It may seem that way sometimes, with the countless hours spent glued to the computer, and reading through never ending volumes of other people's family trees, microfilms, census records, family bibles, ship manifests, old books, town archives, GEDCOM files, cemetery records, military archives, and much more. 

But the work I've completed to date wouldn't be nearly as thorough without a great deal of help from dozens of researchers, amateur and professional, with whom I've enjoyed hundreds of emails, many shared amateur publications, old photos, and lots of debates over what may seem like ridiculously miniscule details to some, but to a passionate genealogist, they are not.

This post will hopefully serve as a formal thank you to all my "long lost cousins" and many non-related historians for their generosity, humor, and most importantly, their interest.
