“Cousins-Right at Your Fingertips! Using the SKCGS Surname List”
One of the more frequently visited pages on our website is the Surname List. This is the digitized version of the box of 3 x 5 index cards to which people have been contributing for several years. A list of this sort is a great opportunity to find others who are researching the same families as you. MaryLynn will briefly show how the list works and how you can contribute your requests and share your information with others!
