"Gary, Thanks, but I dont pay for research, good luck."

Jay -- I do pay for research. My personal investment is several thousands of $ and many, many more hours spent indexing since 2007. You'll have your own good luck if you use my index at the public library. My posting on Forster Foerster, Förster and Forester shows that.
I've had emails from family researchers who tell me that the professional they hired couldn't find much of anything for their German immigrant ancestors in Milwaukee, and yet there it is in my index, and in fact, more than they would've expected! (that's why local researchers, lib'arians and academics aren't keen to see ANY library adopt my project ;-}
