    Hello Stephen,

    I have enjoyed your web site, and the fantastic use of sources and notations. It looks like first quality research.

    I am just getting started, and have found a wealth of information on Ancestory.com. I am curious to know how you determined the image numbers and folio numbers for the sources you site from Ancestory. I do not see that level of detail on the images and source notations I have collected for my family from the Druin Collection on Ancestory.com

    Any help would be apprecitated. And my compliments on your translations. My french is weak and your translations have allowed me to make better sense of the church notes for my ancestors.

    Thank you again – fantastic site/blog.
