TAHS Website Updates for Nov. 2006

Dec 1, 2006

Wow! Another busy month for us. So many folks sending
"goodies" our way. Super Hugs to Becky Jones for all of her
transcriptions of the Whiteside Bios - 1885.

Brian Sanders from AZ (a FOY & McKENZIE) descendant paid us
a visit this week. It is always so exciting to actually get
to meet the folks I communicate with via email or the site.
He was buried up to his eyeballs in old Tornado newspapers
and funeral logs!
