Does someone want to help this fellow
As per my phone call . I am looking for  some one to redraw the family tree.
It is currently  laid out in the proper form, but no room has been left to add the next geneation to it. Also many  written in updates etc.
No research is required.
It starts in 1792 so it is not a large project, but I have no knowledge of where or how to start.
If you could be of some assistance in helping me find  someone to do this it would be very much appreciated
