Hi, I just wanted to let the group know I have the 2 copies of the Soule, Soulis etc. family History by Ridlon handed down from my great grandmother Agnes May Soule Johnson to my father. I know Ridlon made errors in his books so the information is not accepted for the Mayflower Society for membership but it can serve as a good guide to some family trees. I would be glad to do limited lookups as I work off webtv so I am not able to copy and transmit information. Silvia Dyer Poules, Springfield, MA
