Joseph Thomson's Family History

A large amount of information on the family history of Joseph Thomson  has been gathered over the years and many of his family descendants have made contact with the Joseph Thomson Group.

 At the end of 2017 the family history of Joseph Thomson was handed over to the Joseph Thomson Maasai Trust for them to become the keeper of this information.

Information on the extended Joseph Thomson family tree can be obtained  by e-mailing
