      Comments: Russell - Very, very impressive work! I randomly came across your website the other day when searching for some extended family members online (specifically my paternal Grandfather, Donald Victor Cole, to you - Person ID I22995).

      I can fill in some missing modern links on that line if you are interested: Donald and my grandmother, Virginia Mary Smith (ID I22996), had 4 boys, David Garry Cole (my father born May 14, 1948 in Grand Rapids, MI), Patrick James Cole (which you have already included, I22997), Richard ? Cole, and Michael ? Cole (I'll have to ask my father about Michael and Richard's middle names and birthdates/locations). I can also send photos if I can get my father to cooperate :)

      Unfortunately Michael passed away about 20 years ago, though the rest are alive and well. Virginia also passed away, that was in 2009 if I recall correctly.

      I can continue on with my own siblings if you are interested. It was very cool to see the details of my great-grandparents, again I amazed at what you have been able to accomplish here. As my father and his brothers are your third cousins once removed, what does that make us?

      Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further details, I can also check with my family to see if we have other info that may be helpful to you. Finally, note that I'm currently living and working in Vienna, Austria (), so if you are in need of some "local" research over here, let me know...

      Best Regards,

      Garrett Cole

      I just looked online myself and found Michael's details: he passed away on 11/10/1990 in Santa Clara, CA (age 35 years)
      I have also attached a picture of the boys from the early 1960s (1962 or 1963?). From left to right it's David, Patrick, and Richard, with Michael in the front row.

      This was taken in front of my grandparent's pizza parlor "Pinky's". The Petaluma location still has their iconic sign, also attached. Note that I simply saved the sign picture from a random Google search, so I wouldn't post it, but I thought you might enjoy seeing it. Donald and Virginia both worked for Varian working on microwave systems (Donald was a machinist and my grandmother must have done technical assembly), they went in on the pizza venture with some friends from the area :) Fun stuff.
