This is a particularly powerful testimony. I especially like the accounts of how miracles solved your problems after you did all you could do, as well as at the beginnings when you didn't know where to start a search. Too many family historians, I believe, are afraid of this looking-through-a-glass-darkly approach, not sure they will receive the inspiration required or not willing to live so as to be able to avail themselves of it. Those who have this tendency lean too heavily on the usual sources of information and also tend to show some contempt for testimonials such as yours. They miss a lot but they feel safer in their research efforts.
