Hey. Taking a break from studying for tomorrow's test to post a reply. I know how you feel. You do all this work and share it, and although you really are expecting payment, a nice thanks would suffice. Many times I get calls for info and as soon as they get it I mentioned if I could get their info and they all of a sudden have to go. It does not Always happen that way, but when it does it is really frustrating. Most of the time I find people to be nice, thankful and sharing but there is those exceptions. But as Angie said, sometimes it is slow. I did some genealogy for someone on my son's soccer team as a learning experience as it was an Italian name, etc. Sent it to her and soccer was over so never heard a word. I bet almost 3-4 months went by, I had forgotten about it. I got the nicest letter in the mail with a $25 check to say thanks. She had just been so busy and saw the genealogy one day on the desk and it trigger her to send a thank you. so, you may yet still get a thanks...I appreciate your sharing as it lets us see we may not be alone in how we feel.
