James L. "Jim" Terry 1925  - 2015

Jim  Terry sent these updates to me on August 1, 1999. I have not made any changes or updates to these files.

This is an update for Terry cousins with Lawrence County, Alabama roots. I just received a new GEDCOM from Jim August 1, 1999 and he said they are working on a book about the Lawrence County Alabama Terry's. It appears from a telephone conversation I had with him today they have finally found out more about the origins of this family.

 The links the word RTF files below will ask for a user name and password. Just click cancel option and the files will  open. For those who have Adobe Acrobat Reader there is also an Adobe Acrobat file option. Due to the size of the files I had to break them up...
