Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

Starting a Project

I dug out the box of letters from my grandparents that I want to transcribe. So far, I've discovered my grandmother's idea of dating a letter is to put the day of the week down. Since it seems she wrote Grandpa, who had just started working in Detroit circa 1927, on a weekly basis, I really have to pay attention to the postmark.

And I've discovered not everything in this box is a letter. Included in this little bundle is a small silhouette, probably either of my dad or my uncle.

It's like a treasure chest!
