  6. 6. What is the story behind Jessie A. Thompsons genealogy book?Questions that Catherine Clary Mclean asked her Aunt Marj (Marjorie Ann Mclean Szor) in May 2012:1. What can you tell me about those binders? How many copies of the binders did she make? Who doyou think has copies? Idont know how many binders there are. I have one, you do [Catherines fathers, Thomas Nicol Mcleanl, and maybe Viki [Purcell Everhart, niece). I know that Jan Uanice lrene Mclean Purcell Swerske, sisterl made a copy (copies) of it. So that is probably what Viki has and maybe the copy went to Eric [Vikis brother]. Viki would know. Also, Uncle Ted Thompson must have had one which Hope [his wifelgot. Does cousin Ted Thompson have it now? He lives in Richardson, Texas and I have heard from him lately by email. His email is He is the oldest of Ted and Hopes children and is interested in family matters. He might be a good source for family info. He is also in touch with Lytle Thompson in the Chicago area who was born in 1925 His email address is hlvtlethompson@gmailcom lMost of the penciled notes that say "did not copy" were probably written by Marjs sister, lan.]2. Did your grandmother (Jessie Thompson) work on them until she died? My grandmother worked on this hobby for many years. She did research every where she went with her husband, Herbert, as he did his lodge business in this country and Europe. She visited Vital Statistics offices, libraries, cemeteries, etc. No internet for her! She was really into it. (as you can tell). I believe she did work at it until she died (of a stroke).3. There are penciled notations, were they your grandmothers, your mothers, or both? Idont see many notations in my copy. What I do see is my mothers [Florence O. (Thompson) McLeanl handwriting.4. Was your mother interested in family history? My mother was very interested in this and wanted to do a lot of work on it when she retired. But that day was not to be.5. Do you know when your grandmother did the bulk of the research? 1920s? early 30s? earlier? My grandmother died in Nov. of L937. I believe she had worked on it in the 20s and 30s and maybe before that.5. I guess she was a good typist and tireless researcher, right? How many women could type backthen? Yes, the typing! | never thought about that. Oh, my. Catherine Clary McLean, 25 May 2012, Los Angeles CA
