Oma (McNeal) Whitson Sept 1960

A letter sent to my grandfather, Archie Wineland, asking about his family history.

Even back then people wanted to know about their family history. I'm not sure which White family book we are in, but I will say, we are out in a lot of family history books, as Mable Matheson Wineland, my grandmother, gave out that information to a lot of family members. As much as it pains me to know there is a photo of our family that will be the death of me! I hated that photo and yet I have found it published in at least 3 family history books. To think of all the pictures out there of me, that is the one people will see for years to come. (Don't know what I did to deserve that!)
