No project is too big with helping hands. And that is especially true of this Cooper County Genealogical Web site. Providing the information that you find on this site took hours and hours of volunteer help. I would like to take this space to recognize those people who have contributed their time effort and resources. Please, if I have failed to mention you; please don't get angry but gently remind me of your contribution.
