Thanks for highlighting my post, Heather. I appreciate it. Google newspapers can use all the help they can get and I hope, hope, hope geneabloggers boost the data.

As always, you are very welcome Nancy. Based on your tip I went and did some searches for my family at Google Newspapers. A few brief searches didn't find much, but I think it is worth exploring more!

Wendy said...

Thanx Heather! Such a surprise being included. I also appreciate that you share so many good blogs that I wouldn't know about otherwise.

Wendy, you are welcome! And in a funny twist, I was on ebay last night looking for old photo albums (a secret passion). Anyway, one of the photos in the albums looked so similar to the one on your post with the two women sitting at a table between to men that I had to head to your blog and see if it was the same group of people! Turns out it wasn't, but your post obviously stuck with me!

Amanda (the librarian) said...

Thank you for including my post, Heather! Glad you enjoyed it!

Heather Kuhn Roelker said...

No problem, Amanda! Your post reminded me of my time in Germany...spring and Easter were one of my favorite times there.

Marian Burk Wood said...

Wow, I really appreciate your mentioning my "650 WACs" entry. It was quite an adventure and I'm only sorry my aunt never talked about that voyage. Happy April!

You are very welcome, Marian. I loved the story...I'm a sucker for military history!
