I live in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. I hope to make it to Texas for a research trip soon. I am pretty tied up with obligations that will not let me get away for more than a long weekend right now. I do have family that is scattered around though and may be nice enough to look something up....

Keith, I bet you could post whatever you are looking for in the Discussion Forum as a thread. Maybe it is something I can find from here.

So there is this great Ranger group, but does anyone live in or near Waco to do lookups? My next trip to Texas probably won't be until February (and I almost always go thru Waco).
