Great response, guys! Okay, I'll try to get something set up by next
weekend--if not through an online service, then just a regular account
through my bank.

Keep an eye open for an eligible Abraham descendant. I'll post to genforum
sometime this week and let the CFAA know what we're doing in case they
know or hear from anyone.
