... or I could get your name completely wrong and lose any chance at striking up a friendly correspondence. I'm really sorry, Sarah. I didn't see what I'd done until after the message was posted. It certainly was not meant personally.

Has anyone else a copy of the home-typed booklet?
THE FAMILY TREE
HENRY F. MARTIN
KATHERINE C. (MICHEL) MARTIN
[My photocopy courtesy the late R. C. Munson.] I have been unable to locate a publication date or author/compiler information. The most complete descendant lines in the work ?appear? to be for Louisa's (1863-1946), Rosa's (1865-1945), and J. Henry MARTIN's (1869-1947) issue, through the mid-1960s. Can this be considered a clue?
No one seems to want the credit for all that letter-writing, collation, and organization. Which is too bad, because it's nice work. All but a few earlier dates have proved-out so far. And the contradictions in early dates are supported by contradicting original documents -- not a clerical issue at all. Add to it how arduous 'desktop publishing' was before home computers. This was some cousin's extreme labor of love.
I like it. I'm keeping it. All my subsequent compilation and research has grown from the "seed information" in this family publication. I want to know to whom I owe so much. And I want to be able to site them appropriately in my records. Has anyone a hint to spare?
Thanks and best wishes!
