Thompson Genealogy 1979 Edition

Thompson Genealogy 1979 Edition is the second printing of Tommie Thompson's work on the Thomas Thompson line out of Harford Co, Maryland. His first printing was the 1961 Edition. The pics follow the sequence of the pages of the book, with some file names showing major topics sequences. Much of the material in this book regarding the Zach Caleb Thompson line of Fayette Co, Iowa, was taken from Blanche Horton's scrapbook, which I will eventially upload. However, my FTM files contain most of both Tommie Thompson and Blanche Horton's material so if working on Thompson genealogy, one needs to start with a PDF copy of my Thompson file. iowaz@swbell.net or iowaz@hotmail.com
