A heartfelt word of thanks to all family members who have sent me photographs and information. Feel free to download, print off, or save whatever family branch or pictures and documents you're interested in. If you have any other legal documents, such as marriage and death certificates, passports, citizenship, etc., I'd love to receive a copy of them!

In 2010 my son had his genome DNA tested showing the
Paternal Haplogroup reaches back to Gascony in Southern France and
the Basque Region of Spain, as far back as  20,000 BCE,
the time of the paintings in the Lascaux and Altamira caves.
The result should be applicable to other Glaysher descendents.
