This was sent to me by a friend. They made me smile- I hope they make you smile too. If you can smile too- it will be worthwhile....Mary Would you believe...these are copies of actual correspondence received by the Family History Department: Our 2nd great grandfather was found dead crossing the plains in the library. He was married 3 times in the endowment house and has 21 children. He and his daughter are listed as not being born I would like to find out if I have any living relatives or dead relatives or ancestors in my family. Will you send me a list of all the Dripps in your library My Grandfather died at the age of 3. We are sending you 5 children in a separate envelope Documentation: Family Bible in possession of Aunt Merle until the tornado hit Topeka, Kansas, now only the Good Lord know where it is . The wife of #22 could not be found. Somebody suggested that she might have been stillborn-what do you think? I am mailing you my aunt and uncle and 3 of their children. Enclosed please find my Grandmother. I have worked on her for 30 years without success. Now see what you can do. I have a hard time finding myself in London.
