  1. I'm glad to see the blog posting these tables of contents. I was doing it for several years on Genea-Musings because nobody else was and I thought that it was an easy way to get the word out - especially when someone does a search for a surname and a place name.

  2. Thanks for your comment Randy ... I agree that it makes the published information more easy to find if it shows up in a search and for me it kind of makes the publications less of a black box -- with secret contents ...

    Appreciate your having done this in the past! And, feel free to drop us a note if we "forget" in the future ...
