HIGH SUCCESS RATIO! In the last year, not one, but two people have contacted me via my website; both provide what they seek. Skillfully, I find their ancestor on an immigrant ship AND the emigrant ship that departed Hamburg AND a previously unknown ancestral town of origin in Germany. I email, no reply; I call; the first one feels I am somehow ripping her off. Mind you, there was no demand made. The other says that she just put $20k into her house. She does not wish to pay me anything for this successful work. It required skill, language & transcription by a laborer in your vineyard, worthy of his hire! It was worth twice the amount I asked. Really? You can’t send anything? Nada? Zippo? Zilch? Then, why did you make a request on my website? I love to crack & solve cases, but the last time I departed the grocery store with several items, they actually wanted me to pay for the stuff. The landlord & Caesar also want their due. Go figure. While I might feel a little better having blogged about this incident, the bills remain unpaid. If someone found my Sala ancestor in Europe, I’d be all over it asking if they would accept a partial payment & monthly payments! Wouldn’t you?
