But last year you said you were going to post some, but there were
sooo many and it was taking a long time to sort them either
they were very blurry due to the bus movement, or it turned out to be
too much work to scan in all those postcards you bought via

Did you not let them know you were coming?

I hope you realize all those records at the courthouse wouldn't have
been in English? Amateur genealogists, gotta love 'em - haven't a
clue how to properly research or document, or interpret the validity
of sources.

Ditto - and the on-line directory being on-line, you can look these up
before you get there! Did the same thing in Croatia several years
back - were treated wonderfully by distant cousins, but we had written
back and forth and made arrangements for a specific day and time to
meet. Unfortunately, one of them, my grandfather's niece, died
several days before we arrived, but we did meet other family members.

We live in New York. We spend the winter in Florida, in our motorhome.
