Not the way to do genealogy !!

Another case of “too little information.” (See Armchair Research.) With all the data available on the Internet, and Ancestry, fewer letters are exchanged. However, “in the old days,” it was customary to send a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) and sufficient information to attempt a connection. Because there are Shanks connected to my Frantz family, eighteen years later I approached Ancestry.com for the answer. Spun my wheels, waste of time, no resolution.

The “bug” won’t go away; I’m still sick. However, the stacks of information haunt me and I’m forcing myself to spend a few hours.
