        I have some good news and some bad news for the Reynolds Bigelow side of the family.
The good news is that I am just about done with the Bigelow side of my family tree. The bad
news is that my paper work is a mess right now. If the Bigelow Society would give me the
pleasure of letting me update your records I would be very honored. I have been looking into
my family history for about 6 years now and it's been a very hard road to back track on. When
I am done I will be showing the family tree to my grandfather who is Reynolds Bigelow  great
        Also I wrote you awhile back about changing my email address on your web site. Please
let me know if you get this email. I will put the old and new email at the end of this email.

 I am looking into my family history and I was wondering if you could help me. My great grandma's name was Harriet Bigelow born 12/23/1882 died 11/18/1971. She married Thornton Pickenpaugh Shively on 5/1906. He was born 2/1869 and died
in 1949. Harriet had a sister named Grace and their father had a sister name Nel Alhizer Bigelow. I have a family album with very old picture's here is a list of all the Bigelow's in it and if you recognize any of these names will you please let me know. I would really appreciate any help that you could give me.
Melinda also sent photo above.
Under Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds Bigelow (At the bottom) it says Harriet (something). I only knew her name from your
site but now I know that is her name.
