An early birthday present came when Aunt Mary brought over an old photo album for us to go through, writing as many names as we could identify on the back.
Sisters with their magnifying glasses.
Ruthie started writing down all the names she heard too, just like me. If she gets into family history, I will be thrilled. I can picture us traipsing through all sorts of landscapes uncovering clues.
Mom getting flustered over our cute farm stock genes. Great Uncle Bessie and lots of giggles around the table.
So much fun. I love hearing about these lives before me.
