Jennifer, I tried to send an email to the address in your profile but didn't receive a response.So here it is.Please reply to email@example.com
Hello, and it's nice to hear from you. I've been researching the Kaighin family for some time so I check the Kaighin genealogy forums regularly and I just saw your post.I've actually done quite a bit of research on your branch which you can read about on www.kaighin.com/familyhistory/kaighin.htm. I don't have your father linked into my database, but I'm sure I have his father and his father's family.So if you can tell me your grandfather Kaighin's name, I'll be able to give you your lineage.And I have been in contact with some Kaighins descended from this Toledo bunch, so I can put you in contact with them as well.They live all over the place now.
Regarding your half brother Charles.I believe he may now live in St. Louis.Only one Charles Kaighin shows up in people searches for both the US and Canada.All the posts I can find from him are from 2000 and he doesn't seem to know much about his family, but here's the info I've collected on his posts:
firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com http://genforum.genealogy.com/kaighin/messages/18.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/kaighin/messages/18.html Charles Thomas Kaighin b. 1965 Miami, Fla Son of Thomas Preston Kaighin, b. 194? I think in Miami, (not a lot of info on that, but could research it) and Sonja Jean Gundersen b. 1945 - 1998 b. Miami, Fla.
