Stephanie Rawls-DeMaya My cousin is looking for family members of Martin C. Thompson. It was his father and he was just a baby when he was killed in 1981. My cousin's name is Kenneth (Kenny) and his brother was Robert (but, we called him Robby) Martin was married to Lynda King briefly. Any information about his father Martin and family members please contact me via Facebook Stephanie Rawls-DeMaya or by email [contact link] He has tried to get case info about his death but, this was all pre-internet. He is hoping to connect with family members of his father and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

Derek Wade Hello again Deb,
If you do intend to search backwards from 1760, are you aware of the site www.rootsireland
They use Official records, started about 4/5 years ago and are good.

Good luck with your searches,
Derek
