My blog features articles on a wide range of historical topics and includes personal stories, historical documents, and photographs. My blog includes resources for family history enthusiasts, such as examples of historical resources and articles about researching family history. I aim to provide a unique and personal perspective on my ancestor’s past, and to help my readers understand the experiences and struggles of the ancestors who came before us.
My older sister, Linda, is celebrating a birthday, today. Happy Birthday, Linda! Although we live several states away, I am thinking of her today. If I lived closer, I would make her favorite German Chocolate cake and take it over. I remember our mom making German Chocolate Cake from scratch for her birthday. She would serve it on a beautiful Fostoria crystal cake pedestal. This picture was taken in Ferndale, Michigan at our aunt and uncle's house, Hank and Mabel Glover. I am guessing it to be around 1960-61. I don't remember the dolls names. One of my favorite memories from childhood with Linda include the time we put on a play in the garage and invited neighbors to watch. When I was in college, Linda would come and visit. I always appreciated those visits. I hope your birthday is special, just like you are.
