George Aubrey Thomas' Birth Certificate

After a recent search on the Family Search Pilot website, the elusive birth certificate of George Aubrey Thomas was found.

His father and mother seemed to have moved back and forth from Chicago, Illinois to London, Ontario. And conversely, trying to trace their path has been an uphill struggle. Eventually, the Thomas' clan moves to California and George becomes a dentist in the US military.

Interestingly, the birth certificate denotes his father's occupation as tobacconist (i.e. cigar maker.)

This is also the first primary source with his mother's maiden name, Jane Elizabeth Danton. Another index of the marriage indexes for Chicago has her maiden name spelled as Dainton.

Interestingly, a number of the Thomas clan have the knack for living well into their eighties and nineties.
