If you are doing genealogy research and don't have a website, you do not know what you might be missing. Even after almost two years of blogging, I still get far more inquiries because of my website simply because there are so many more people listed there than I have written about here.
After responding and thanking her for the correction, I heard back from her a little later. By that time, she had found my photo of Roy Neely's headstone. This time she told me that Roy was Alma's brother. She wondered about Roy's relationship to the Lanier family. Well, Kathleen's mother, Hettie Lanier, was James' sister so that means Kathleen married her uncle's brother-in-law. I had no idea that Roy and Alma were siblings and had never even realized that they had the same last name (maybe because I had the extra "e" in Alma's name but probably because I had not paid close enough attention to these people who married into the family).
This Neely researcher also told me that Kathleen was in a Maytag ad in the 1960s. When I started typing a Google search for the ad, I really didn't expect to find it. But I did. She appeared in at least two issues of Life Magazine, probably many more considering the two I found are six months apart. This one from 17 Nov 1961 and another issue from 16 May 1962 are available in Google Books. There are even a couple of the actual magazine pages for sale on ebay for a few bucks. (Yes, I ordered one. How often do you find a relative in Life Magazine, even if it was an ad?)
Granted this is not a big brick wall breakthrough (although I've had those thanks to both my website and this blog) but it is still interesting information that I might never have found on my own.
