My Ancestors Signature #18 ~ Thomas Hayes Sr

Signature 3D Word

How many of you have searched for any kind of photo of an Ancestor and you weren’t able to find one? Especially for one who lived before photography was invented? Have you ever looked through documents like wills, or marriage licenses and you discover that your 3x Great Grandpa had signed it? This signature is a little piece of him that was left behind. By posting it online we can preserve it for future generations.

      1. It would for sure! Valerie I don’t know if you got a recent message from me on your FB page but fyi–as of May 27th I’m locked out of my FB account for thoughtlessly trying to edit my personal info which is a no-no. FB says it’s shorthanded due to the virus so verifying my account “will take longer than usual”.

        Anyway just thought I’d let you know I haven’t gone pouf! Jude

      2. No, I hadn’t heard about your lock-out! Boo, not good. Thanks for letting me know! I did wonder what happened to you. At least we still can converse through WordPress.

      3. We can! However, last evening I took a friend’s advice and set up a ‘new’ FB account under ‘Judith Cowell’ so I’ll search for your page with that! 😉
