I’m sorry to have to report that Sue, SAJ, our Share Genealogy forum moderator, passed away July 29, 2010 after a brief illness. Her husband emailed me to let me know and mentioned how much she enjoyed the time she spent here.
It’s hard to believe she’s gone. She helped many people in their research and her hard work and loyalty will be sorely missed.October 17, 2010 at 2:56 am #35490LindaKeymaster
I just did a search in ascending order on Sue’s username, SAJ and found her first posts, which summarizes her family line. And all her posts follow. . .
If that link doesn’t work, just user the Advanced Search for username SAJ, ascending order.October 17, 2010 at 2:56 am #35493techteachModerator

I always tried to get a hold of her since we lived in the same town. I wish we could have met.October 17, 2010 at 2:56 am #35753cherosageParticipant
I’m very sorry that I have taken so long to get beck on here only to find out about my Cuzn. We were related in many different lines which vined around ourselves. I knew she had’nt been well early last year, but, I thought she was getting better.
My thoughts and prayers for her family. She will be such a big loss for them and the rest of us. She always had such a wealth of family info. I knew all I had to do was ask and she knew the answer.
