What is your relationship to the HANKSES? I'd love to know if we are related!!
I have information on the family tree before Peter HANKS 1681-1733 into the 1500's and England, if you are interested.
Please let me know.
Also, it is rumored throughout our family that we are related to Nancy Hanks, married to Thomas Hanks who had Abraham Lincoln, the President. Do you have any information regarding her?
Look forward to hearing from you.
