Thanks a lot for your work. Ever since I did a genealogy project in HS 28 yrs ago I've found this stuff interesting. Although I've had a lot of information your pages add a lot! I did have problems with the search function but then working on my own I found most of the information I wanted. My great-great-great grandfathers link was dead 15924.55t Chauncey, b 15 Sep 1813 Manchester. NY; d 25 Sep 1893 leads me to HTTP/1.0 404 Object Not Found If there is any way to repair the link I'd be most interested. Thanks Michael Carlston
