My name is Margaret Elizabeth Tuffin. I am more than just new to this genealogy research game.I was born and raised in Iowa.We were a family of farmers. I am the second of ten children, 5 boys and 5 girls.My father was John Edward Tuffin and my Grandfather was Wendell Cheever Tuffin who died in late August or early September of 1939.
In my search for other family members, I found a name of Margaret Jane Tuffin from Sidney, Australia who had submitted my grandfathers name to the Mormon Tabernacle Library of Genealogy.I wrote to her approximately two years ago but she has never answered.Names do not show on the public list from the Mormon Genealogy until 50 years after death.By this time I do not know whether this woman is alive or deceased.If alive, I presume she is very, very elderly.I have not been able to tie her to anyone but feel she would be a good contact.My mother worked on the family genealogy for many years before her death.
I would sincerely appreciate a response from you or anyone else of interest.Thank you
