Great Scott but you're good,.Mate
   I managed to go browse through them. One of your references had several from Thomsontown and my home counties in PA.
I like to think my gggg whatever came over in early 1800's because he had kin there - but no real nab it.

I remember buying those CDs from other website separate even thought I had bought the book from them.

Thanks for the book lists.  Always helpful.  I ordered a copy of the Electra Spangler book and was really disappointed.  It's the pedigree portion of someone's Daughters of the American Revolution application and has absolutely no resources cited.  You can find the same information for free online.  One example is  Happy Hunting Everyone!
