Thomas Family Photos (Cont)

John Burrell (of the Forrest Family) has just sent me my first photo of my great-grandmother Lulu Cairns.  Very exciting.  I was surprised how much she looks like my grandmother Mildred Jean Forrest.  She’s holding John in the photo, which was taken about 1941.

So of my eight great-grandparents I’m missing photos of two, and of my sixteen great-great grandparents, I’m missing photos of five currently.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
