Customer Question
My dad told me...

My dad told me that our family was related to Abe Lincoln my marriage. I was just wondering if I could find out more on it.

Expert's Assistant: The Genealogist will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Genealogist can help you best.

I went to Alabama to visit my second cousin a few months back and she had pictures and stories on how far our family goes back. My last name is ***** ***** it actually was young before it was changed by my fathers grandpa by marriage.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Genealogist should know?

My blood is also related to the Hatfields and macoys, aswell as Vikings
