I grew up in Minnesota, and I have a lot of relatives there, and in Wisconsin. So I never really expected to run into any relatives when I moved to Los Angeles, California. But I did. It's the Phillips side of the family. Please let me explain.
My g-grandfather (I never count the g's), Thomas Burroughs Phillips, had a daughter named Mae (my great-grandmother) and a son named Ira. In fact he had a lot of kids, but it's Uncle Ira that moved to Los Angeles. Ira is my great-grand uncle, but nobody ever says that kind of stuff. To me he's just Uncle Ira. That's him in the photo above.

So there you go. There is my Phillips family in Los Angeles. Hooray for Hollywood!
