Sorry for the trouble, but some kook sabotaged my e-mail subscriptions to
the Rootsweb.com mailing lists. I can still receive postings to my
USER683614(a)AOL.COM box, or here. I also have about a dozen screen names with
two other Internet providers, so if those of you who I am helping will e-mail
me privately, I'll give them to you. I hope this problem will resolve itself.

Hello to the Great State of Iowa,
I am searching for any information anyone can provide me with regard to
the surname TARRANT and FEDEREN.
Both families lived in various parts of the state, but spent quite a bit
of time in the Minneapolis area. I am searching for PHILIP FEDEREN (1883) and
his wife EDITH FEDEREN (1884) and their two children FABIOLA TARRANT (1897)
and CECILE TARRANT (1893). They were last known to be in the Twin Cities area
in 1944, but their descendants could be anywhere by now.
They were relatives of GEORGE A. SHANNON AND ISABELLA (McDonald) SHANNON
of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and their son ROBERT D. SHANNON, who was last
known around 1942-44 to be living in Spencer, Iowa. Robert's wife was named
JESSE and his children were ANNABELLE and GEORGE, also of Chippewa Falls, WI.
Any information regarding these families or their descendants would be

May you ponder on January 4th; How did this ultramodern civilization
of ours manage to get itself traumatized by a possible slip of a blip on
a chip made out of sand. May we relax about the Third Millennium of
the Common Era, and realize that we still have 240 years until the dawn
of the Sixth Millennium of the Jewish Calendar by which time the
computer is long since obsolete and so are we.
May God give you the strength to go through a year of presidential

taxes and balancing budgets happen.
May you be awe struck by God's sense of humor as you wrestle with the
possibility that a professional wrestler could become president of
