LOOKING FOR THE OWNER OF McGOWAN FAMILY PHOTOGRAPH
At our reunion in May 2015 someone gave our Secretary (Mandy Waller) a photograph of the McGOWAN family (Alexander BOOKS and Margaret GRONO descendants) to scan. Unfortunately something went wrong and the scan was corrupted. We are hoping to find the person with this photograph in the hope that we could obtain a new copy of it. Please click on our email address to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
