Wednesday's Child ~ Remembering Thomas William Iverson

Thomas William Iverson was my paternal first cousin once removed. He was the son of my granduncle and grandaunt, Christian Julius Iverson and Florence McIntosh.

Thomas was one of three children born to Christian and Florence. Sadly, Thomas passed away when he was only six months old. His death must have been so heartbreaking for his family.

Thomas was born on 27 September 1929 in Hennepin, Minnesota and passed away on 31 March 1930 in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota.

While doing research about little Thomas on Ancestry.com, I was directed to the People Finder page on the Minnesota Historical Society's website. That website gave me Thomas' birth information. I'll show you how I found it.

On Ancestry.com, I was given this search result about Thomas. I clicked on "Go to website."


The following box popped up. I then clicked on "OPEN WEBSITE."


 I was taken to this page on the Minnesota Historical Society's website.


I typed Thomas' name in the search box.


The correct Thomas William Iverson was at the top of the results list.


I clicked on Thomas' name and the following page appeared.


Isn't this great? It shows the birth date and place for Thomas. It also includes Thomas' mother's maiden name as well as his birth certificate number. And as you can see, there is an option to purchase the birth certificate as well.

It's so sad that little Thomas passed away at such a young age. If you'd like to see Thomas' Find A Grave Memorial page, please click on the link below.
