Thank you so much for your reply. It is the first positive reply I've received in the many I've sent out.

I do have a problem. I took Latin in high school and college and I don't speak Spanish.

Would you help me? If there is a positive match between Helen Galtier and B.F. Titus, would you let me know where specifically I can look?

We-husband and myself-would be so grateful.
Thank you!!

Hello. I have a special interest in Frank and Jen Latona, as they worked for a while in England with a couple whose biography I have just written. could you re-explain your family links please. Are you sure Frank divorced to marry Jen? Were his children raised Brits or US?
Any other info most welcome.

Best wishes,
Robert Kenny
ps. I know a descendant of Jen Latona's sister and she has a very old photo album.. but pre-Frank 1900.
