Hi Jessica
Are your ancestors names James Bertha Dick and Ruth Evenlyn Dick ? can you
take a guess about when they died? Is your Grandfather still alive? What is
the Philips name have to do with the other people? Can you tell me the
Children of James and Ruth, One of these Children is you Grandfather's
parent is that right? So ask you grandfather about the birth and death dates
of all of these people and see what he has to say. I bet you he has a lot to
tell you. So be ready to take notes and then sent another Note.
