When I generate a Genealogy Report on the Speights family, the report has 58 pages, including 238 individuals with "more about notes". Family Tree Maker's copyright does not allow me send you the entire file, but does allow me to provide "small amounts of information".

The Speights name caught my attention, because during the early 1950s, I worked in the office of Judge Carlos G. Speights' campaign headquarters, Baton Rouge, LA, when he ran for Governer of the State. Unfortunately, he lost, but I believe he was a fine gentleman who would have made an excellent governor.
