Dear Genea-Santa,

Hi, it's me again! First, I'd like to thank you for those Worcester County Probate files over on the site.  And thanks for the hint from Elizabeth Pyle Handler that helped me fill in a whole lot of blanks on my Moore family ancestors.

I'm going to try to keep my wish-list short and sweet this year. Here I go:

-Please help get more Suffolk and Plymouth, Ma. County probate files online,

- I'd really appreciate it if you could do the same for the court records for Middlesex, Plymouth, Suffolk, and Worcester County court files, I just know there's probably some juicy family stories in them like the ones I found in the Essex County court files,

-Could you  get me a bit more ambition to get out next year and drive to the towns my ancestors lived in? 

-As usual, I need help in breaking down a few more brick walls, especially the one for the Elusive John Cutter West,

-Finally, I want an app that will help me find the gravestones I'm looking for when I visit one of the cemeteries where an ancestor is buried. Something that makes it easy, like maybe a hologram of a flashing neon arrow pointing down at the headstone as a trumper blares. Maybe you can get the  Ronco Company to manufacture a Ronco Easy Headstone Spotter?

That's it for this year Genea-Santa! Thanks again! 

And Merry Genea-Christmas!

I would settle for an app to find the cemetery! Great ideas here! I hope all your holiday wish list is granted.

I am flattered to be in your list of thank-yous! Again, I'm so glad I could be of assistance!
