How You Can Help

If you found information on this site that was helpful, it was probably something that was provided by another Friday or Friday descendant. Wouldn't you like to return the favor and further expand the utility of this site? Here are some ways to do that:
   1. In our Family Tree, can you tell us which members of your family are missing?
   2. In our Archives, can you scan the names in your family's States and Counties and see if you can identify any of the unknowns?
   3. In our various Professional Lists, can you add a new name or identify the ancestry of one of our unknowns?
   4. In the Interesting Friday section, can you tell us the ancestry of any of the unknowns? Or can you send us a news clipping on another Friday, perhaps yourself?
   5. Do you know a Friday in the Military that is not reported or whose ancestry is unknown?
   6. And finally, in our Neighbors 2 section, do you know for whom any of the Friday places were named? or email:
