Thank you, Michael! I hope you'll join us in connecting a couple! I have a list of families in the 1900 Census at the linked G2G post. I have been going through them one at a time and adding links here but it is slow-going. I appreciate your help!

You're welcome. I'll help where I can, but I'm still figuring out the ropes around here, technically speaking. Here's Artemis Dumont's husband (says so in the bio), but there's no profile made/attached for her, yet: Goodwin-6594.
