Sue Scott's Database on RootsWeb

  Before Sue's passing in May 2013, she provided a copy of her extensive database of over 40,000 names - a lifetime of research.  Her desire was to share her work yet that, though unfinished, it remain unchanged.

Many of us failed to tell Sue how much we loved her when we had the chance but we will demonstrate our love and respect by faithfully honoring her wishes now.
