Treasure Trove of Letters

My Mom and I took a drive yesterday and celebrated my grandfather's 92nd birthday yesterday with a visit out to my grandparents house. We had a lovely visit with them, and my aunt and cousin were also there to visit.

But guess who got the best present?

Yes, me!

Take a look at what I got to bring home with me to scan!

I've taken a brief look through and so far, the star of the letters is my grandfather's brother Pete - in his letters, not only does he mention family members, but he refers to them as "our 5th cousin Marie" or "our 4th cousins came to visit us today".

I'm going to call him today to tell him how awesome he is! :-)


  1. Oh My Gosh!!! You found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Does it get any better than this? I'm really happy for you.

  2. I think you won the lottery and went to live in Genealogy Nirvana!
