This entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities

…entry is part 4 of 9 in the series Treasures and Curiosities The other day I got side tracked from a little job making a couple of pairs of PJ pants for GD1, and cleaned off the shelves in the back storage room. In the process I also sorted patterns, but that is another story. A few things surfaced, which I photographed for Treasure Chest posts. I remember this shoe shine kit well. I have no idea how I ended up with it, but it contains enough…

Moving Right Along

…I can remember, Keep Your Eyes On The Prize. Interesting, unsourced info on WikipediA on that. To end this little evaluation, here is the song that that saying is based on. This a super cool version from The Nashville Bluegrass Band. That is Mike Compton singing and playing mandolin. I had to look twice, usually he is wearing a T-shirt and bib overalls. I love this video, for the song, the excellent job done on it, and for the camera shots of…

…d in my Grandmother’s home. My Dad referred to it as the “Kaiser” bible. My paternal grandmother’s name was Winnie Alice Kaiser, and I remember a little about her and my visits to her home until she passed away when I was 6 years old. Sorry to say, I have no idea what happened to to the Bible, or where it might be. In an effort to learn more about myself and my family, I am researching my way through local records, near…

I hope to meet and correspond with other researchers of the same…

GeneaGlogger’s 2010 Winter Games, Task 4B

…217;s view, but I tried this anyway. To illustrate, I added a date of birth for every indirect source I had. I also added his children’s births, which don’t show up on an individual’s detail screen. A weakness that I noted was that day, month and year were required. To be honest, the farther in my research I travel, the less sure I am of dates. Since many dates are hard to pin find myself using “about” or…
