Hi Mel! Thanks for the post on Farrar-86. Jamie Nelson & Debi Hoag both sent me that link too & I've edited the ref to the FSFTID to be clickable to it. I don't have a login for Family Search, so it does me no good. (And I don't use WikiTree x because last time i tried, it wanted me to give it my WikiTree ID & password. Just not comfortable doing that.)

Anyway - if connecting Farrar-86 to WikiTreeX would benefit folks, have at it, and THANKS :D
