I'm not a mod, but it would be so helpful to put the person's name you are searching in the subject title. It might receive more results. I know this has been brought up before. So instead of saying "I'm looking for my father" - put dad's name in the title. There are alot of people who are willing to help, but the more information, the better

Going to bump this back to the top so more people will see it. I think you are right. It takes time to open every thread. Seeing the name would help greatly. I know I don't open every thread.

I thought the posting tips Should be renamed posting guideline's as that title might make more people read it. No one wants Tips to post as they already know how, but guidleines, that is more important, and the next step to rules, and one doesn't want to violate them.
