    Message:: My father-in-law, who passed away in 1998, was a member of your organization and truly a "good man." The world could use a few more like him. He is truly missed. Thank you for allowing curious, respectful visitors the priviledge of visiting your site.
    RQFC-topic: Masonic symbols
    RQFC Details: Masonic symbols believed to be found in abundance in Leonardo Da Vinci's paintings, drawings, etc. In addition to what appears to be an endless series of numbers. Whether these symbols and numbers were utilized as a means of preserving information or as a means of passing messages down through the centuries, of course I can only speculate. If this is news to you, please feel free to contact me. If you are already...well I doubt you'd be interested in sharing their meaning...would you? Respectfully yours, L. A. Sanford

    RQFC-topic: Searching For A Friend
    RQFC Details: I don't know if the Masons will agree to this type of research question, but I am looking for the name of a friend who refuses to tell me if he joined the Masons. Whether he did or didn't, does not matter, its the fact that he is so secretive about his answer. So maybe the Masons won't give out this type of info, and I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. And if the Masons tell me if this friend is on the membership list, is it possible to not tell the friend that I asked, and let me do the telling. Thank you for your time and effort in this matter.
