A MEMORIAL TO JACK RUSSELL HIDAY

I created this Memorial for his parents, sister and her children.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Harriet (Hiday) Lytle for all the family documentation about the Russell Hiday Family. It was just a couple of weeks ago that my sister was here visiting and I was showing her what I do on the interne when we "stumbled" into the memorial you had put on the internet. We were both interested in your Memorial to Jack. I first learned of Jack in an index of war casualties that I found at a Family History Center. It is possible that I have Jack's parents and ancestors in my database. Maybe you can confirm this. This started the genealogy search that led to finding the Russell and Mary Hiday family. She is still very busy completing the reseach and I can't wait.
