Family time at Higgins Lake 1955. My aunt, mom, sister and 3 cousins enjoying time “up north.” My parents and my aunt and uncle built cottages next to each other in 1955, and we’ve had 63 years of wonderful experiences there. I’m kind of jealous of all the good times I missed out on with my sister and cousins because I was the “surprise” baby that didn’t come along until 9 years after this photo, when my parents were in their 40s. #memories #higginslake #vintagephoto #vintagephotography #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhitephoto #family #familystory #oldphoto #found #vintage #foundphoto #familyarchaeology #familyexcavation #archivist #retro #pasttime #history #1950s #1950sfashion #genealogy #midcenturyliving #nostalgic #lakelife

This painting was painted by my paternal great-grandmother, Lillie Amanda West Bowser of Clark County, Ohio. She was an art major at Antioch College. It is the only known painting the family has of her's to my knowledge. Isn't it wonderful?! @artbowser @amandabevan2 @awhelan3 #ancestorstories #ancestors #genealogy #familyhistory #painting #artmajor #antioch #ohio

Она воссоздает историю семьи для своих сыновей... ⠀ Бережно и трепетно. Кирпичик за кирпичиком складывает свои воспоминания, подкрепляя их рассказами старшего поколения... А мы помогаем оформить визуально то, что сможет рассказать мальчишкам, откуда они родом и куда уходят их корни. Вот так на холсте появляется изображение дома, который дедушка построил своими руками. ⠀ «Дом был с полым подворьем, с картофельным полем, за которым была баня... Внутри было просто и пусто, как в избе, стены бревенчатые, но кровать была красивой высокой, с большой горкой подушек... над кроватью в рамках висели старые фотографии. Это было моё самое любимое место в избе. Мне нравилось рассматривать фотографии, лёжа на кровати. На них были самые близкие и родные — это был бабушкин так называемый «красный угол», там были свадебные фото всех её детей... ⠀ В доме была печь, воду носили из ближайшего родника на коромысле вёдрами. Вода из ключей была вкусной... чай - такой, что не напьёшься, особенно если положить смородиновые листья! Смородина каждый год давала отменный урожай, даже варенье не варили, только сахаром засыпали и протирали на мясорубке. ⠀ Помню, как в доме появился телефон, точнее, это был диспетчерский аппарат... мы баловались, снимали трубку и говорили: "Диспетчер, диспетчер, дай жену на вечер". В доме много смеялись, почти всегда было весело. ⠀ Дедушка полностью воссоздал дом, в котором когда-то вырос, сделал его точь в точь, строил сам... место было удобным, но влажным. По весне и в дождь во дворе стояла вода...» ⠀ Деревня Семь Ключей и ныне значится на карте... Поэтому ее обозначение занимает своё место на холсте... «Дом находился рядом с ж/д станцией. В стакане с чаем звенела ложка, когда за окном проходили товарняки... Будильником были не петухи, а громкий звук проходящих поездов. ⠀ Позже станцию упразднили объединили с более крупной. Мои мальчики не знают, как было... и никогда не узнают... дом продан и перенесён на менее затапливаемое место, на месте дома теперь пустырь и высокие травы... здания вокзала тоже нет, его разобрали..." ⠀ ПРОДОЛЖЕНИЕ В КОММЕНТАРИЯХ 👇👇👇

City Park Bandshell, City Park, Denver, Colorado, circa mid-1960s.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I saw many concerts here as a kid. City Park is Denver's oldest park and considered Denver's equivalent of Central Park. I believe the oldest section of the park was built in 1882, only six years after Colorado received statehood.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cityparkdenver #denvercolorado #livemusic #vintagephoto #foundphoto #oldphoto #leicaphotography #coloradophotographer #familyhistory #familyhistorymatters #genealogy #milehighcity

Benjamin Franklin was right. There are only two certainties in life: death and taxes. And this Thanksgiving, I'm mighty thankful for Berkeley County, (West) Virginia's 18th century taxman. A weekend of research in genealogy's preeminent library may have turned up clues - albeit opaque ones - hinting at the existence of my 5th great-grandfather in the household of his speculative parents.

When I lived in one of the apartments here, at Villa Torsberg in Bollnäs, I knew I had one connection to the building. The builder, Reinhold Båth, was my grandfather’s grandfather’s brother. It was built in 1891 for the bookkeeper of the iron works at Kilafors, and later bought by a man named Johansson in 1941. When he died, the house was taken over by his son, Nils Bolldén. Nils’s wife Sonja was the last person to live in the whole house before it was turned into apartments in 2009. When I was looking for my grandparents’ wedding banns, I was surprised to find Nils and Sonja listed above them, having gotten married right before my grandparents. And then today, I found that not only have I lived in “their” house - we are, of course, related, me and Nils. It’s a small world and it gets even smaller when you start doing genealogy! Thanks to @bollnas_historic_pics and to Karin Ahlfont’s book about C. Båth for some of the facts. The photo was taken in 2011, getting ready for the Swedish finals in bandy. If you look close you can see the Bollnäs GIF bandy flag on our balcony. #swedishhistory #familyhistory #släktforskning #genealogy #bollnäs

All I want for Christmas is this membership. I had one and then my dad died and his cousin who I have never met my cousin Morris reached out to me and we discussed doing a genealogy picture project and he sent me so many photos of my family that I’ve never seen before. I finally got to see what my great grandfather looked like because I’ve never seen a photo of him my entire life. I found my entire family my grandmother, my great grandpa and great grandmother in a sense this I found out that my aunts name was a different name when she was younger and she shortened it and neither of her sons, my cousins knew that, I just love it. #genealogy I also did family tree and found my mothers biological fathers cousins daughter it’s just awesome bc I didn’t meet him until I was 13 bc she was sold as a baby and it took 36 years to find him and her biological mother. #alliwantforchristmas
I love how my mom made us matching coats! Plus I love my dad’s bow tie! One of my parents’ best friends worked at Iowa School for the Deaf, and I have found several photos of us there. Circa @1953

My 3x great grandfather William Houston Spencer and his wife Serilda Cockerham. William was born in 1862 in Breathitt County, Kentucky to Nicholas Bowman Spencer and Mary Stamper. He was never married to my 3x great grandmother Millie Ann Spencer but they had a child together, my 2x great grandma, Ruth Ellen Spencer. This is where it gets weird. Grandma Ruth married Dennis Brewer, son of George Washington Brewer and Caroline King. 3x great grandma Caroline had a sister, Lydia King, who married Martin Cockerham. Lydia and Martin are Serilda's parents. In short, my 2x great grandma Ruth married the 1st cousin of her stepmother, Serilda. I wonder if this is a before dinner pic. #ancestry #genealogy #kentuckyancestors

This reading aims to give you a glimpse into your family's ancestry from a time when humans were not the only ones mainly influencing the planet. Maybe you noticed a particular member of your family that happened to look like a troll? Or remember someone in your family who was always called an angel? They may have more predominantly carried a trait from a magical ancestor from ages ago. One that still flows through your veins today. Be it Vampire, Angel, Elf, Fae or much more. This reading researches and finds up to 3 different magical beings that are apart of your families history! The standard reading will contain three types of beings that are in your family line, and what talents they are associated with. For an additional 30$ I will bind your ancestor's energy to a pendant so you can access them more easily to work with and connect too. Each being in your blood gets 1-2 paragraphs of information. It can take 3-7 days for reading to be typed and completed and vessel to be shipped out. All payments must be made in 24 hours of the invoice. #familyhistory #genealogy #familytree #heritage #history #family #ancestors #magic #love #meditation #spirituality #spiritual #astrology #intuition #tarotcards #psychicreading #intuitive #medium #witchcraft #witches #pagan #occult #witchy #witch #oracle #divination #metaphysical
An enlightened mind perceives inner-pain as growth. ✨ A healer is somebody who can see without judgement. ✨ Love is the warm feeling of being spoken to curiously, by someone seeking true connection. 🌹 I’ve always been intrigued by genealogy. Feeling threads of myself running through Eastern Europe, Wales and Northern Spain. ✨ One day at Ram Das’s home on Maui, nine years ago, I was talking with Mirabai, and all I heard in my head was, “Amora,” over and over...”Amora, amora, a m o r a.” ✨ I thought it might be the name of my future daughter. But each time I birthed a child, I knew it wasn’t their name. I was puzzled. For a few years I forgot the name. And then it recently returned loudly. I decided to look it up again: ✨ Amoraim (singular: Amora), Jewish scholars in ancient Babylonia and the Land of Israel. Enchanters. Singers. ✨ Here is my great-grandfather. He was a rabbi, and enchanter, a healer, a man with a listening heart. Look at that warmth radiating from him. ✨ I received a message from my father today. He is asking me to learn a Shakespearean Prologue. He adored Shakespeare and would memorize entire plays. ✨ #soundhealer #enchanter #rabbi #easterneuropean #amora #ramdass #enlightenment #shalom #bluepearl #gategateparagateparasamgatebodhisvaha #maui #shakespeare #intuition #genealogy #genetics #herstory

The holidays are a perfect time to learn more about your family history and to help preserve the details for generations to follow. Whether you are searching for a missing link to your Patriot or want to help record your family member’s memories, be prepared and write it down! Our chapter registrar, Jennifer, also suggests recording an interview with your family members - you can prepare your own questions, find prompts online, or use prefabricated interview books. A transcript from your interview will be an excellent resource for future generations; be sure to store hard copies in a fireproof safe and digital copies on the cloud. #genealogy #thanksgiving #familymemories #todaysdar

Do you need a hug? 🤗 . Grandma’s hugs are a blessing. Shown here is my brother with our Granny Klein (aka Bertille “Tillie”). . I blinked and it is holiday season again. What the what? . I wonder if our ancestors felt as stressed as we do over the holidays. Like life was just speeding on by and the only option they had was to hold on or be run over by it. . Whatever “it” is. . I am sure they did. . But I also think that it was different. In my family’s case, there wasn’t a whole lot to spend so you didn’t spend it all. . The focus I felt was more on simply being. . Make all efforts to be together. Share a meal. Go to church together. Just be. . Since both of my parents were only children, I have many memories of both sets of grandparents celebrating a holiday with us at our house. This was especially common as my dad’s health declined and travel for us was not an option. I see now how special that was. . But I know the holidays can also give you all the feels. Sadness. Anger. Disappointment. Loneliness. Joy. Laughter. . And sometimes this happens all in one sitting. . So take heart, dear friend. Tillie and I are sending you a virtual hug today and always. . As my wise mother likes to say, “This too shall pass.” . Who would you like to give a virtual hug to today? Tag them below! 🤗 💜 🤗

A few days past Veterans Day, honoring my Grandfather who died 75 years, today, in a submarine bombing in WWII. One of my genealogy miracles - I was coincidentally near the location at sea where he died on my cruise 🚢 to Istanbul/Croatia several years ago. They were even offering scuba diving down to the submarine wreckage. April 8 2013 - Izmir Greece “On November 15, 1943, my Grandfather, Karl Jakob Schlegel, was killed in the Aegean Sea, a soldier, on a submarine, for the German Kriegsmarine in WWII. The situation was probably very similar to the German film, Das Boot. I found a WWII log of that date which, indeed, confirmed, that there was action, near the Greek Islands, Piraeus and Calinos, on this date, in the Aegean Sea, with casualties. I didn't think about it, at the time I planned this trip, but one of our stops, Izmir, is near those islands and that part of the Aegean Sea. I never thought I'd be visiting this remote part of the world, where my grandfather took his last breath, on Earth. Family History seems to follow me where ever I go, even on this trip to the Mediterranean. My Grandfather was only 37 and left behind my Grandmother, Hedwig, and 3 small children. I feel honored that I'm able pay my respects to him here today.” #genealogy #familyhistory #miracle

Working early this morning on my friend’s African American line and came across this amazing transcribed document from a will in 1822 listing the transfer of ownership of slaves to their kids with their names listed. Many of these people lived in the mid to late 1700’s. It’s very rare to come across names and specific information of African Americans this far back. Usually they’re just listed as a number of livestock. So crazy!! 😠 DNA matches show some of these people’s children share the DNA of the slave owner. Some of their descendants also ended up in Yazoo, Mississippi and are related her Brown family! Feeling the spirit super strong with this new discovery! So excited! Can’t wait to process all their names and get their work done! They’re not in FamilySearch yet! #genealogy #familyhistory
