Dear Cousins,
We picked up Volume VIII from the bindery yesterday afternoon. Today was spent packaging them and readying them for the mail. The books (including Volumes I and V for Jack and Sandra) will go out in Monday's mail.

The bindery really pushed hard for us in order to try and get these to you in time for Christmas. They finished a week before we were informed that they would be ready!

I hope each of you will enjoy learning about your Thayer family and ancestors. Please drop me a note and let me know that they have arrived and, when you have the time, please let me

hear your impressions of this latest volume. I spent extra research time researching in order to include the parentage of the spouses of Thayers and also, when possible, the children of the daughters of Thayers.

Not all the 400+ photos are the best, but I always maintain that ANY photo is better than no photo.

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this latest volume to be completed. I have already commenced work on Volume IX (9) and it should be ready in time for next Christmas!!

December 24 footnote: All copies of Volume VII (7) have been sold, but will do a second printing should there be enough interest! Volume VIII (8) is now in the homes of those individuals who pre-ordered. A limited amount left available. My work on Volume IX (9) has already commenced and will be ready for purchase in 2019!!

Very busy here at the Muno household with grandson home from the Navy and daughter's family with us year round. We love having them! Wishing all our dear Thayer cousins the Merriest of Christmases filled with love and laughter!
