I am trying to do my family tree on both of my paternal grandparents but at this point do not know where to go next. If anyone can provide me with any info on these folks it would be wonderful!

I am looking for any information on my paternal grandmother, Mabel Griffin Biggers, paternal grandfather, Maynard S. Biggers or my dad's brother, Jimmie Biggers. I know he was living somewhere in TN in 1996, with his adoped son but I believe he has sinced died.

My grandmother is listed on the 1930 "Nashville City" census as 28 years of age with her 2 sons, Jimmie Biggers, who was 9 year old, and (it says) W R Biggers (actually W L who happened to be called "Doug" all his life) who was 8 years old. My dad was born in Chapel Hill, TN. My grandfather changed his name from Biggers to Thompson.......

I know there are/were a lot of Biggers in TN and other states, but don't know which "family" is the right one at this point. Or the Griffin's for that matter.
