Thomas E. Starzl's Geneaology
Dr. Starzl’s knowledge about his ancestors was limited to sketchy verbal history passed on by his parents and 4 grandparents before he permanently left LeMars in 1944 at the age of 17. After he retired in 1991, he began a search for his German and Irish forbearers, using the grandparents as the keys to his genealogy.
