Comments from our guestbook...

I'm delighted to find your website! My sister spent years on our Thayer genealogy, even traveling to Thornbury to look at records. Now I find that you, the collective you, have already done the work she did in the pre-computer era.
Our relative was Richard Thayer who emigrated with his brother from England to Braintree, Mass. in 1630.
I'm glad to meet you.
