Peter Thompson is our brick wall.  My husband's grandfather, and we can find nothing on him.  He was the father of Helen Julia Thompson, born July 21, 1922 in New York.  She was an only child, so tracing this is very difficult. We are trying to learn more about my husband's ancestry.  Any tips about what to do next would be really appreciated.  Thanks!

Was Helen Elizabeth born in upstate New York? If so, do you know the county and or city?
She was born in New York on Sept. 2, 1902.  I am not sure of the location.  From census records, I think she had a brother named Charles, but I am not sure.  Her parents were Edward and Anna Miller.  Thank you.

Do you have any living relatives that might be able to provide more specifics on Peter Thompson?
No, there isn't anyone. Her daughter was an only child and she is deceased now.  I have tried asking a few remaining people, but they didn't keep up with any family history, unfortunately.
