Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching for about 15 years. I am lucky to have had two parents who took an interest in the family history and a grandmother who spent most of her life archiving pictures and data of our families. I am just the guy who gets to hold it for awhile and pass it on to the next generation better than how I found it.

Konrad and Katharina Thomas
May I use your photos of Konrad and Katharina Thomas for my tree on I believe Katharina was a Koch and would have been my second great grand aunt.

RE: Lurandus McCurdy
Thankyou. My email is I do not have any individual photos of Matthew or Lurandus other than the one where they are in their civil war uniforms.

Civil War Picture
I have the same Civil War picture. My husband pointed out that the image is reversed. If you look at the belt buckle, the U.S. is backwards. So I always wondered if the labels on the photograph were reversed. At sometime in a copying process, the image was reversed. Is that Lurandus on the right or on the left? I know that Matthew had the higher rank. I think he was a Seargt. and Lurandus a Private when they joined the army. After Matthew's death, Lurandus assumed his rank.

RE: Lurandus McCurdy
I would love to get copies of the pictures if you are willing to scan them. I am a McCurdy descendent. My line is me - Vera Maurine McCurdy (mother)- Maurice Eugene McCurdy (grandfather) - William McCurdy (Lurandus's youngest brother)- Robert McCurdy. I also have some photos. I have one of Lurandus and Matthew in their Civil War uniforms. I need to dig it out to add it to the website. I also have one of their sister Mary Elizabeth holding Willie as a baby after their mother died. She basically raised William. I will be more than happy to send you copies of what I have. I also have a copy of the book Mary (McCurdy) Kennedy wrote "Chapters from a Long Life". Let me know if you don't have it.

You must be a McCurdy descendant yourself. Thankyou for contacting me.
