What is a Query?

It is a message from you about the people you are researching

    The queries are designed to be posted on line so that others who are researching in the same state and county as you may read them and will be able to make contact with you if they have an interest in your query.
    The county coordinators do not research the queries, they only post them so that others may read them.
