See how this works. My Wilkes County Working file consists of 10 pages in very rough draft mode. This means I haven't completed all my footnoting nor completely switched to that style, nor have I had a chance to analyze all that I have and match all of it up. You may find a marraige record in my "Unlinked Section" yet find that name attached to a family. If you have any questions please ask and I will clarify for you. I notice that the footnoting symbols did not make the cut and paste...I have included the footnotes below the dashed line although you have no references to match them up. Again, just ask. I try to be very carful to verify my conclusions on any fact with solid logic and hard data so if you see something you know as a fact and I annotate it in my notes as unproven or in question, I may be unaware of a document or other means that proved it at this time. I am sending you this file in sections so expect multiple emailings from me today.
