Our grandfather, Thomas Salinas, from Mexico, a descendent of King Louis VIII?
He just might be. Check out the Pedigree Chart I posted on the Thomas Salinas Research Blog. It connects Thomas to Royalty and then to Louis the VIII, King of France.
There you will also find a couple of stories about Thomas and Nancy Athena Porter. Click here for the newly started research blog site.
I think I remember that King Louis fathered a lot of children.
