This site has some really super search engines.
I just searched for my surname. One of them was so thorough it pulled
up 6 messages that I had posted to this list! That really puzzled me
because I though information posted to mail lists was restricted to the
members? Am I wrong? Or does rootsweb have a crack in their system?
Have a great day, Joe
Hi all you genies out there in cyberspace.
I need some imput from you.
I own a 13 yr. old electric scooter that just died.
Medicare is really giving me a hard time about a replacement.
Can you give me some suggestions about how to convince Medicare that I have
depended on an electric scooter for 13 yrs..the company does not manufacture
the repair parts any more.
The keep asking me why I can't use a regular wheelchair..
Telling me electric scooter is considered a luxury
That if I can get out of bed in the morning without a scooter..I don't need
They also say..if and when it is ever approved it would only be to rent..not
My new doctor seems reluctant to back me on this..even tho I now can only go
as far as my walker can go.
I am frustrated and angry..will welcome all suggestions.
I know you will help me figure this out.

Last week we discussed difficulties with microfilm readers. There may be
hope in our future yet. While visiting the Heritage Quest website [which I
just read today has been acquired by SierraHome], I ran across touting of
their new technology: digital microfilm on CD-ROM. They offer several of
the more popular censuses, and the prices are ranging about $15.00-$20.00
per, counting as one roll each of NARA microfilm. It might be worth a
peek. Go to http://www.heritagequest.com. Please understand that I do not
have vested interest in any company or organization I ever mention. It's
just a resource, not an advertisement in the true sense of the word [unless
you count "word of mouth," that is].
I know my neck and arms will appreciate the TLC this technology brings.

My g-g-grandfather, Peter O'Conner was born in Wexford Ireland in 1931 and
died in Montgomery County, GA in 1911. He immigrated in 1847 (we think),
accompanied by his brothers James and John. It's believed the brothers
entered at either Maryland or Virginia. His first wife, from whom I'm
descended, was Amarintha Amatha Moseley, a midwife and "healer" in Montgomery
County. Peter fought in the Civil War. His pension papers (which I have in
photocopy) list his widow as Fanny Cooper. We know all his descendants from
both wives. Where do I go from here? How do I find his parents, grandparents,
etc.? Any coaching would be appreciated. My cousin and her mom are
researching the Moseleys.
Your kind offer of assistance intrigued me.
I am very interested in the history of The Battle of the Little Big
I see you live in Dakota,which I believe was the area concerned.
If you access to any records or material,associated with this,I would
gladly arrange to pay you.
Normally I dont ask for things,because I find it embarrasing,but I
couldn`t resist your offer.
The history of the Wild West has always fascinated me,as you can
imagine,theres not much available in England.
I`m not very mobile these days,but if theres anything I might assist you
I love speaking with people over the net,I still feel part of society
All the very best to you.

I live in the western part of ND, but love to travel around (there are
times when I can't, but driving is usually one of the things I can do
most times) and would be happy to help with on site research. Don't
know if there is anyone on this list that needs ND research, but thought
it wouldn't hurt to offer?

I wonder if there are some workable old inexpensive microfilm/microfiche
readers available through the government surplus sales in various local
Has anyone tried a filmstrip or negative light box? I wonder if that works.
A tip that's making the rounds is using yellow film to lay over microfilm in
order to better read poor census copies.
I had the same problem with high reader screens and long-armed cranks last
week. Thought I'd lose my neck nerves in the process. One thing that sorta
helped was taking my car cushion to boost me up a bit in the chair. I did
use the machine with an automatic winder. The film text shoots by if you're
not careful. However, I found it hard to read the upper part of the page.
The little up/down adjustment knob was not easy to manipulate.
