This week we explore the theme of education. I approached this by looking at both my pedigree and Dale’s and searching backwards to find the first ancestor who advanced beyond high school.
My great-aunt Esther Hanson worked for many years at the Covenant Children’s Home in Princeton, Illinois. She devoted several pages of her photo album to what look like happy memories of the time that she spent there.
In this last installment of the Road Trip, we follow the Rudeens and Hansons on the return trip.
I left my road trip series hanging back in February – still more of the story to tell! I also have some updates about my family history and genealogy work at the end of this post.
This week’s theme is “Fortune.” Merriam-Webster gives several definitions for fortune: A large sum of money; prosperity attained partly through luck; or destiny, fate.
