  My Grandpa was Elmer A. Bigelow born around 1870/72- I haven't worked with this in awhile, his fathers name was Loren,
  and his fathers Hiram. All these folks in Michigan.
  I went to the Michigan Genealogy library in Lansing ....and found a book published. Once I hooked Hiriam up and kept
  going back in the book I ended up around 1600/1700 to a Biglo hall in England.
  It's really nice when someone else did all the work and put it in book form. I went to the cemetery of all these folks listed
  above and took pictures.
I see there is some mistakes, like one is the spelling of my grandma's name
...it is Doretha...I have her death certificate.  and  do you want any updates
Like children of Elmer and Doretha?
