Word has been received of the death of Kathy (Kunce) Linderholm on 29 November 2008. Kathy was an accomplished genealogist who made many contributions to the Adams-McKain family history. Photo of Sunny.
NOTICE: American Online (AOL) has, without notice, shutdown their genealogy websites (Kathy Linderholm's website with the Adams and related families is now shutdown). All links to her website are not working--I am working on changing the links and am in the process of replacing that information on this website. Our goal is to get the pictures, documents and history placed on this website. Thank you for your patience. Her AOL pages can be found at this archive. If you have any of the photos or documents from Kathy's site that are not "live" links please contact Jim Adams.
