Dear Thames, Tims, Timms Researcher,

A combination reunion and organizational meeting is being planned for April
4 & 5 2003 in Gastonia, NC.

The purpose of the meeting on 4 April is to form an organization of
descendants and researchers of the surnames Tims, Timms, Thames, Timbs,
Thanes and any other variant spelling of these names. The purpose of the
organization is to share family information, produce a newsletter, provide
query service and establish a pernament depository of research on these
families so that future generations will have the benefit of research which
has already been done.

The purpose of the meeting on 5 April is to vote on options developed at the
April 4 meeting and to visit and get to know our cousins even though some of
us spell our ancestral name slightly different.

The location in Gastonia is a meeting hall in a Church equiped with a
kitchen and there is a copy machine available. Several well known motels
and restaurants and a shopping center are located within 5 miles of the
church. Gastonia is located on Interstate 85 near Charlotte, N.C. where
there is a major airport.

The organizing committee is in the process of negotiating special motel
rates for these meetings and we need everyone who is interested in attending
one or both meetings to send to the address below the following information:

Name(s)
Mail Address
email address
kind of room needed (single, double, twin, queen, king bed.
do you prefer a one day meeting instead of 2 days?
If you cannot attend the meetings are you interested in membership in
the organization?

Please respond right away in order to assist in getting the best possible
room rates.

Please pass the word to any others who may be interested.
