    This website is amazing and easy to manipulate, although I’m still learning as a senior citizen. Extensive records are available but I have come to realize that transcription of information as dictated by non English speaking people must’ve been difficult due to pronunciation of words, letters, therefore B’s and V’s , Y’s and L’s, etc. compared to how we communicate now! Thank you for all you do. I’m enjoying the app. A window into our past and exploring all the places my ancestors came from, excitement to find out I’m Native American! Now I know why we were called little Indians as children by neighbors. Thinking to myself it was due to us always running outside to play for as long as we were allowed. I feel proud my ancestors were the indigenous inhabitants of Texas & Mexico.
