Please listen to the "duck"
quacking! These folks did! We thank them!
We COULD NOT EXIST without your
kindness & generosity! If you have watched television recently for
more than 6-seconds, you've seen the little duck that becomes quite
exasperated when nobody will listen to him telling which insurance
company will protect them in time of need. He quacks and quacks and
nobody pays any attention. Bless his little feathered heart.

Folk will say, "Beth, you're kidding, right? The Family Tree
doesn't really need money so badly, does it?" "QUACK! Quack!

half of the costs of this publication. YOU are the other half!
Thankfully, I'm starting to see
things going back to a more "normal" way. Checks are once again
coming in...but we did not have a full postage deposit last time.
That means this paper started "in the hole" in my simple
If you enjoy this paper or if you
think it is important to keep this paper going...please think of us
when next you write checks.
If you see any of the following
folks, please thank them for helping with the never-ending expense
of mailing The Family Tree. If you have made a postage contribution,
please know how much it is appreciated. Thank you!
Without your Postage Hero help,
this paper would not be in your hands at this moment and your editor
would be flipping hamburgers somewhere!
"QUACK! Quack! QUACK!"
