Margaret Mellisa Lang …Mystery Solved
I, as well as many of our family members, have been looking for information regarding Margaret Mellisa Lang for years. She is my husband’s great-grandmother. On Feb 6th I received an inquiry from another member on Ancestry.com The man, Richard Lang, is a direct descendant of our Margaret Lang. I immediately wrote him back asking for a copy of her birth certificate…here’s his correspondence.
