I have used a ream of paper today trying to get a copy of the census page I needed and all I got were 5 sheets of garbage! Also, the screen with the green that you take us to now is so inconvenient I can’t tell you. YOU and your business take up most of my screen so I am unable to totally see all of what I’m looking for. I do not see this as an improvement and now I’m wondering why I pay for this? Next year, if things don’t improve, I won’t! Can you explain these ‘upgrades’ for the common person and not a computer geek? Pat

Now, since I have renewed my subscription, his records are not there. I was on your site around 1999, or maybe 2000. This was when you did not have to join/free membership. Can you tell me what happened to that information?

Juliana posted the section in her directory where ‘h’ does stand for ‘house — but in the directory I’m browsing right now, ‘h’ stands for ‘head of household’ and ‘r’ stands for ‘resides with householder’ (not ‘house’ vs. ‘renter’ as some might assume).

I’m not even sure where he was born. I do know he died in 1899 in Indianapolis. The death certificate had his name spelled wrong. It was spelled Manease. It should have been spelled Menees. His wife’s maiden name was Rebecca C. Dorsey, born around 1872 in Virginia and died in 1901 in Indianapolis. She was remarried and died as Katherine Marcy (or something like that). I lnow Rebecca had Dorsey siblings. I know nothing about RF (Robert Frank?) Menees. I’m hoping I can get someone like a relative of the Dorsey family who can give me information on Rebecca and possibly even RF Menees from Dorsey or Menees family history and/or pictures. How do I get this information in a place it can be seen for any comments?

Thanks,

Theron Menees Terhune
