I paid $5 for one 20 years ago.
by Angeline Booher / May 24, 2007 9:09 AM PDT

Wanted to read about a long gone family member who fought in the Civil War I paid another $5 for his pension records.

It was fascinating reading. He was a Teamster (drove a wagon), was wounded in my general area, and hospitalized here.

One of my uncles had a more olive-toned complexion than the others. As the records did identify hair, eye, height, etc., it also noted the complexion tone. It was the same as my uncle's.

Another ancestor was captured 4 times. And escaped 4 times. Happy

I recommend those interested take advantage of the offer.

I must be a total idiot when it comes to searches

I found NO listings for VietNam Vets...only decorations and medals, etc. and NO listings for USNavy vets.

Did a search with full name, birth year, country, state and repeated for death year, country, and state, and came up with loads of pages of people with that name for Ohio but with birthdates back into the 1800's. Trying to do an exact search turned up NOTHING...no records found.

I grew up with the man since teenagers, married him, watched him to to war on the USS Enterprise and USS Hancock, and buried him...I know he existed. Three daughters are proof of that.

I just folled his URL

and made a FREE Family Tree.

My Father's side of the family was from Switzerland and Germany.

My Mother's side of the family was more local and I could not find much about them.

It allowed my to have FREE searching tools for 3 days. I guess it's down to 2 Days now.

Hurry before time runs out. I didn't know much about the Historical information, so I let it update the Family Trees, when it found one. Made 11 pages of information that I never even knew existed.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
