I love the Drake website. I am learning many exciting stories about our
I am the lady who sent you the large family tree. Have you found any
ancestors among the branches.
I am real excited about seeing it posted on the Drake exchange. I know that
it will be hard work to post all the names. I was thinking maybe if you only
posted James and Agnes' children and grandchildren and maybe the great
grandchildren. Mostly people are interested in the earlier names anyway.
Also, that would make it a lot easier for you.
I am so glad that you and Barb Marshall have provided this forum.
Thank you so much.
P.S. Learn about worldwide inherited condition that ONE in 259 WOMEN
CARRY. Fragile x is an x linked condition that affects one in 2000 boys,
causing severe learning disabilities and sometimes seizures. Some Fragile x
boys have a tendency to flap hands, large ears, elongated faces, and mitral
valve prolapse (benign heart condition.) An excellent website that can tell
you all about this little known, yet prevalent condition is www.fraxa.org
A woman can get tested for fragile x with a DNA analysis test before she
even becomes pregnant.
