    Clicking the "thanks" button was not enough, Nemo's Mom. That was a wonderfully informative post!

    Great info NM, Sorry I was not on last night, we had a bad thunderstorm and lost power until about 11:30 pm.

    Also I am working on cases behind the scenes as always.

    Raine1212!

    I KNOW you are always working cases. You do so much for the unclaimed and I know you are also working in other forums. Thanks for all you do! Hopefully, my life will settle a bit and we will get a chance to catch up!

    You are an awesome resource. Just saying

    Exclamation free genealogy resources

    Thought I'd list some of the free resources for researching the unclaimed and this is as much to remind myself what is available:

    And most of these I got from this website called 101 ways to research your family tree for free (I believe in giving credit where credit is due): http://genealogy.about.com/cs/free_g...free_sites.htm

    These are some that I picked out. There are many others listed in the above article, check it out!

    I can help with this!

    This right up my alley, I'll be glad to help you guys with these cases.
    I've already begun working on the first one on the list. He's a tough one, but I think he does have siblings still alive. I'll keep you posted.

    Clarify something for me. Are we not to submit our findings on the Claimus site? and instead send them to Raine? or do both or what?

    Thank you Nemo for the great post with all those resources. I use many of them already, but some I didn't have. That's a great list.
    All of the above is just my relaxed coastal Carolina opinion.

    Hi guys, I am still around and working cases. I have had a lot of personal things taken place, but I still check in and NM is keeping me updated. Still feel free to email me with any info and questions.

    Right now Washington state really wants our help. Neno'smom and I will be working a lot of those cases and could really use your help. Please keep us updated on any info.
    Thank for all you do

    Please don't email case managers SSDI info and family trees. If you have located family pm us the info on the family or email the case managers their phone numbers. Most case managers have the SSDI info and birth records.

    I want to thank everyone for their hard work, as you can see we have had several matches and resolved cases. A very special thank you to a good friend and my partner in crime nemo'smom, who puts up with me and talks hours with me on the phone.

    Again a big thank you from me and the families of the unclaimed, we are making a difference.
