Mae and Anna Thomas – Photographed together

This is a picture of my 2nd great grandmother Anna Henrietta Noteboom Thomas and her daughter Mae Thomas. The first one is from about 1920. Mae would have been about 17 years old and Anna would have been about 39 years old. The second one is from sometime in the 1930s. My guess from the age difference sometime around 1935, which would put Mae in her early 30s and Anna in her mid-50s. Mae married a John Stamm sometime in the early 1930s and moved out to Hempstead in Nassau County, Long Island.

  1. Welcome to Geneabloggers!
    Reading your blog, it struck me that the Noteboom name sounds very Dutch. Being Dutch myself, I was very much interested. I also have a blog with many genealogical subjects. One of my posts shows a survey of foreign genealogical blogs/sites showing Dutch origin surnames. The URL is http://www.patmcast.blogspot.com/2012/05/dutch-ancestors.html. The idea is to try and establish contacts between people who have an interest in the same surname. There are numerous cases in The Netherlands where people emigrated centuries ago without leaving a trace in Dutch archives. With my blog I try to bring Dutch and foreign (mainly US/CAN) genealogists together.
    Therefore, I like to have your permission to show your site in my a.m. blog.
    I look forward to your reaction!
    Kind regards,
    Peter
