In Reply to: Where does the name Tonks come from? by Julie Tonks of 327

I have a book composed by Omar Tunks (Richard Tunks) about his family saying Church of Bitterley, England. In his letters, Shropshire is mentioned. The map in the book shows Bitterley north of Bristol and across at Birmingham. The book is on microfische from LDS Utah; or Genealogy Collections, Library of Congress, Washington DC. I have offered to send at my cost a copy of the book - see Tunks Forum #35. I copied it at the Mesa, AZ LDS Library when another Tunks called & told me it was there. It is 75 pages with photos, the map, letters and stories of this family. It is, sadly, not my gene-line that I can see. I am looking for Minerva Ferguson m: Lewis O (or) Irve Tunks, sons Glen b: 1904 and Don b: 1911. email is welcome. Joyce
