Thank you. Looks like my great-grandmother on our Irish side, (Emily Nail) mother to Celeste McFarland O’Meara, might have mixed blood and I will delve further into it, by contacting the Mississippi Geneological Exchange. Thanks so much, my best, Diane
Thanks for letting us know. They’re back!
How do I get to appendix A, B. C to see the names??? They are not clickable and I cannot find them.
