The underlying problem hasn't been resolved. So if you find dead links or things that don't work, just use the back button.

Searching for information on my great grandparents' families. They were William Marmaduke MAYSE and Elizabeth Rachel (GEORGE) MAYSE. They met in either Pettis or Saline Co. MO and were married on 16 Dec 1888 in Saline Co. She was the child of John GEORGE and Savannah BISHOP GEORGE. William Marmaduke or "Duke" was the son of William George MAYSE and Sallie Ann ANDERSON MAYSE.
