Re: [MOL] AMl - Family links?



Dear Lillian.  Thank you for your quick response!  You've sent me lots of
addresses I've not run into.  Also I am new to computer so it's been guess
work and it's wonderful to have direction.  E-mail is something I am
experiencing for the first time too and I wasn't even sure if I did it
right.  I'd be interested in any information, or just to chat for practice.
Thanks, Sherry
