Susan - it is customary to acknowledge that research has been done on your behalf by posting on the thread even if you believe it to be incorrect, or you already have that information.

See your response on the Leonard Giles thread.

Just as a reminder, anyone who tries to help is an ordinary paying member of GR such as yourself, not an employee

Thank you
