Thanks, Danielle ______________________________ X-Message: #1 Date: Tue, Apr 11, 2000, 7:31pm (AKDT+1) From: "Edward A. Black, Sr." To: SOCAL-L@rootsweb.com Subject: [Fwd: Seeking Family of 1966 Crash Victims (fwd)] I was requested to pass this on to the lists for the states involved since the victims of the crash were from several states. This might be of genealogical value. Sincerely, Edward, Sr. ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Tue, 11 Apr 2000 19:53:20 -0500 From: Butch Bridges To: Subject: Seeking Family of 1966 Crash Victims I've been working the past month trying to contact any family members or friends of the victims in the 1966 air crash north of Ardmore, Oklahoma. It has been a slow process. In some instances it seems the next of kin have been scattered to the four corners of the earth. I hope some of you out there will help me in locating next of kin to the victims, so we can tell them about the memorial being erected in honor of those 83 who died that night April 22, 1966. If you can help I would appreciate hearing from you. Maybe you can take a state, and try locating family members within that state. I suggest first trying the electronic phone books, such as http://www.switchboard.com/http://www.switchboard.com/ Or maybe you live near one of the towns listed. With a little imagination and effort, maybe together we can locate at least some of the relatives. What we want to do is just let them know about the memorial being erected, and if they have internet access, the website. Also I will contact by mail or email anyone who is found through the searches. Just let me know so I can contact them. Maybe you have an email friend in or near one of the towns listed. Also keep in mind we will have a memorial dedication ceremony, and we hope to contact as many family members as possible, so they can plan to attend. I know with several of us working together, we can make contact with some family members who would otherwise never know about the memorial or the upcoming ceremony. The link below will take you to a listing of the crash victims. They are grouped by state. If you want to help, let me know, and we'll keep the list updated as progress is made. Check the link regularly. I'll post update info as it comes in to me. Our April 22nd deadline is coming quickly. Please FORWARD this email to anyone you think may help. Thanks.
