Hi, correction: maternal grandfather, oops! I don't think I can get an unsigned copy very easily right now. My grandfather wrote a message in each of our individual copies. I am pretty much the only member of our family branch that still has a special interest in our genealogy. I am very close to my grandfather and always admired his research. Currently, my husband is in the Air Force (like my grandfather was), and we are stationed in Hawaii -- not very convenient to Texas where my grandfather and all of his research materials are. I plan to go home for Christmas and can inquire. In the meantime, if there are any specific questions about the book, then I can try to answer or talk to my grandfather for you.
