This week’s find is a War Ration book issued to my great-grandfather, George Rottman.
My mom gave her dad this card on Father’s Day. Given the handwriting, she was probably pretty young.
I found this business card among my family papers. My mom thought her mom had acquired it somewhere along the line, but….
This is my grandmother’s grammar school diploma, dated 15 June 1934. She attended high school through her sophomore year, but dropped out when her mother died, so that her older sister could finish high school.
This is a card the my grandmother, Joan Garrison McMAHON made when she was a child. I found it in her baby book.
This book first belonged to my grandfather, Harold Miller. It was then passed on to his younger sister, Mildred. When she got it, she covered it with paper to make a book cover. The Evangelical Catechism was used for religious instruction, so I gather that they used it either in a Sunday School setting or for confirmation.
This card was given by my mom to her mom on Mother’s Day.
These are photos of my grandmother’s travel log. She used to write about the trips her and grandpa took, recording not only where they went and what they did, but also the expenses. I hope to transcribe this notebook sometime soon, and will post the transcriptions to my blog. I’m sure it will be interesting to see how times have changed.
