One of the things we like to do at our Annual Membership Meeting, is try to identify relatives in old family photos.

Can you can correctly identify the all of the family members of Jeff Augustus "Gus" BIRD (1893-1954) & Clara Myrtle GRAY-SADLER Bird (1900-1988) seated in the center. The entire family except one grandson (can you name him? I can he was setting out in the car refusing to come in) the Christmas of 1953, everyone was home for Christmas on Meadow Oaks Drive, Haltom City, Tarrant County, Texas. 

If you are the first to identify everyone, you will receive a free Life Time Membership worth $2,500 to the Linton Research Fund Inc., and LINTON & BIRD Chronicles.  Membership includes (by request) a written historical or ancestral research on any of your LINTON or BIRD ancestors and their aligned family branches in your family tree. laughing
