Hi to all,
I'm sorry that I haven't gotten back to you sooner. I haven't been able
to get over to either the Dekalb or Jax County courthouse/library yet. My

world has been absolutely nuts. Things are a bit more stable right now, so
I should be able to get to most (if not all) of your lookups this week.
Sorry for any inconvenience,
