Someone told me about an error on another blog page and of course I could not let it lie. It came from my sloppy handwriting and a vague mind I suppose of a A to a H at Family search.org. While there I pursued the new Beta. Why does it all seem so easier to scroll and select there.
Anyway to shorten the storyI found my Fred Meyer's marriage. Oh is there no bigger pleasure than that! well maybe coming here to share or is it gloating. I am so happy to find what I knew. too bad their is no image, but maybe later on it will be there.
I wondered as I have searched over Iowa marriages, why it alluded me, at every search. I am sure you all know it is Luhmann or Luhman not Lukman.
