Thesis? Genealogy? How About Both!
by Kenneth Wilmarth
My e-mail address is KenWilmarth@southwest.net
and I live in Glendora, CA 91741.
My son, who
has the same name as I, was writing a thesis for .
a degree at UCLA. He was quoting a paper by a research
worker at UNLV. He had a question about the paper, so he
telephoned the man and asked that he call him back.
called back right away, and asked my son "I want to know
about your parents. My son thought that was funny so he said
"Well, they were married, if that means anything."
The Professor said
asked, "Were they from Pennsylvania? "My son said, "my father
was". The man said, "I'm your cousin".
It turned out that he was my first cousin, and that he had a
lot of information about the family that I didn't have.
