Family history falls in my lap !!

I was just documenting the Hawbaker family. True story!! I was expanding information from an obituary and exhausted all the “hints” provided by Ancestry. While engaged in decision-making (keep or send), I browsed a booklet prepared, and shared, among Old German Baptist Brethren family members. “Prepared in 1964” and a part of my library since 1997 (I date my acquired genealogy). Repeat: “True story!!” The booklet fell open to page 19 and my eye caught the name “Hawbaker”the exact same family. When I browsed the Index, I saw (perhaps) one-hundred familiar names that are in or will be in my family tree. ~~ I have the feeling that these families are “begging” to be documented in my forest of Old German Baptist Brethren family trees.
