Looking for family in Belize

From: Cassie
DearMYRTLE,
If anyone knows any Audinettes, Deleons or Lich in Belize or the US, please contact me.

DearCASSIE,
A few pointers to help you make progress climbing your family tree:

CREATING EFFECTIVE MAILING LIST & MESSAGE BOARD POSTINGS
Show you've done your homework. Provide first name, last name, spouse & children's names, specific locality in Belize and US and time period of your oldest known ancestors and make a posting in the following message boards and mailing lists at http://www.rootsweb.com

-- Audinette

-- DeLeon

-- Lich/Leach/Leech/Leesh

You'll be much more likely to receive a response. People are busy. They don't respond well if someone appears to expect things to be handed to them on a silver platter. If you take the time, they'll take the time.
