I regret to inform you, and all others who may read this message, that my
services are not available at this time for private research.  I regularly
receive requests for assistance with personal research.  However, I do not have
the free time needed to fulfill such requests in the reliable and high quality
manner which they deserve.  

My work and personal life consume most of my time.  The small remainder of my
free time this year has been largely consumed developing and managing Internet
genealogy services.

I get so many requests of this nature that I've decided to post some replies in
the forum.  This might help both by letting forum subscribers know what others
are seeking, and by letting them know its not much use writing to me with such
personal requests.  

If only there were 30 hours in the day, 8 days in the week and I didn't have a
regular job, then I would love to donate more of my time to helping with such
requests.  But, for the near future, I just can't make such commitments. 

Sorry I can't be of more help,

Steven J. Coker
