I actually started this one two weeks ago but got sidetracked with work stuff. Here are two group photos from Grandma Rudeen’s photo album, and dad helped me identify nearly everyone!
Might as well put this time to good use…who can help me identify the people in this photo? It’s Nilla (Svensdotter) Martinson with her grandchildren, about 1907.
I made a major, MAJOR breakthrough in the ancestry of my Grandpa Lawrence Rudeen, through his mother Augusta Mathilda Gustafsdotter. At last, we have a true celebrity in the family!
The Malvern Public Library has digitized its historical newspaper collection, allowing for some fun research into the Salathiel Timmons family.
I think I’ve uncovered a family secret buried for over 150 years. Or maybe it’s a fact that’s been just conveniently forgotten or not mentioned…
