Theodore "Ted" Larson


Ted Larson, Plymouth, Minnesota


Like most of you who participate on the Islay email group, I had never met Ted Larson in person - but many of us knew him well via the internet!  After our daughter's passing in 2003, I found myself far from genealogy - and Ted was nice enough to volunteer to take over duties as "List master" of the Islay email group.  He always joked that he'd have to give it back to me soon because he was getting old...  We traded occasional emails about baseball - how good or bad the Twins or the Mariners were that year.  Little did I realize how much more he has contributed to the research of Islay, the Gilchrist surname (and MANY others) - his creation of his own web site to dovetail into mine is amazing, and hopefully many of you have benefited from his efforts!  His work should remain online with for as long as Rootsweb exists.  With the permission of his family, I hope to keep his files available as long as I can!  

Warm regards, Steve Gilchrist - Seattle / April 2007
