I am trying to research my family history in Albuquerque. I know Dr. A.J. Tanny was my great grand father but that's all I know. His, grandson, my dad's name is Michael Vincent Tanny if that helps anyone. Anyone know the doctor personally or know something about him. Thanks in advance.

Hi Jennifer, Would you know what A.J. stands for? There was a Ansel Tanney/Tanny who was a doctor in my ancestors. His father was born in 1855, I haven't found out Ansel's birthdate yet.They came from Canada so I don't know if he would have migrated all the way done there though.Who knows?!
Bye, Wayne

Hi J.--I am 67 years old and live in Albuquerque, NM. A.J.'s brother, M.A. was my childhood doctor. As far as I remember my grandmother speaking about A.J., he was held in high regard, like M.A. But, I can tell you about M.A., his office was located at 109 Elm St SE. You had to climb a few steps into the building, it was a modern 1930's design. There was a built in aquarium with wonderful fish and in the middle of the waiting room was a round/totally circular couch with the back rest, round tubular--I'm pretty sure it was red velvet, anyway it was special. He gave hi-end large triangular suckers with sturdy, white looped "handles." I loved the root beer ones. M.A. was personable, very kind, quiet spoken---but with knowledge and authority. I remember enjoying going to see M.A. M.A. will always be special to our family because after my dad came home from ww2, he suffered from debilitating symptoms and it was M.A. who told my dad it sounded like a cancer--this is after my father had seen various drs. As a retired nurse, this tells me that he was on top of his practice and when I think of M.A., it is with the highest regard. I believe A.J. was the same--there is something about A.J. I can no longer remember, but it is good. It sounds like your dad was named after M.A, if this is the case, that's a telling thing about these two brothers and their love for each other. well wishes in your continuing search. bettyanne
