I'm excited but there is an ugh too. So... I had this thought that I'd LOVE to see the old family group sheets that were submitted by my research predecessors.

My mother's records are in that time frame. We had some records but some of them were destroyed, by a novice genealogist (er, me a decade ago) and by other careless preservation efforts.
