Databases Updated

Due to a massive research blitz, I decided to upload the information from the research now. Over 50 names were added via death certificates, obituaries and cemetery photos. Over 17 NEW names were added to the database. This update also reflects the passing of Juanita Dudley. Mrs. Dudley is the mother of Serena Dudley Briles who is married to James Rex Briles Jr. (my brother). I have several other "issues" rising from the research blitz so I will be working on these next week. I'm also working on BIN Central and a new cemetery/burial database.
