Looking for info on THOR FORSYTHE GAINES born Jan 31, 1890
I'm very new to geneology so forgive me if I'm making a faux pas, but I am looking into the lineage of my great-grandfather, Thor Forsythe Gaines. My mother and I are going to Wales in September, which promted my initial googling of the Gaines family name and now I'm all amped up trying to find out if my family really is from Wales or not. I imagine I don't have time to trace my family back that far before we go, but it would be nice to have some more information anyway.
He was born Jan 31, 1890 in MI, married Charlotte Ann Derda and had three children:
Murriel Gaines, abt 1919 OH Daughter
Donald Gaines, abt 1921 MI Son (my grandfather)
Lois Gaines, abt 1928 IN Daughter
Died in Los Angeles, California in 1973
Any information you could share, or good resources, would be much appreciated. Thanks!
