Create A Unique Keepsake Image They Are Sure To Love

 

 

In my circle of friends (family genealogists who cherish their heirloom photos) there is nothing more precious than a keepsake photo print of an ancestor. As the keeper of the family records and photos I’ve been able to memorialize some of my own favorite pictures printed on canvas. Not too long ago I was able to put a wonderful copy of my grandmother Helen Nordgren Moline on a canvas print that now is displayed near our front door so everyone who comes in or goes out can see her pretty face. The print it special to me because I never got to know her because she passed away before I was born.

Waterford, Wedgewood and Royal Doulton Collectibles

Over the years I’ve collected several Waterford, Wedgewood and Royal Doulton pieces and have them proudly displayed all over the house.

My first pieces were given to me by my mother. Her step mother Lillian Epstein Moline had some beautiful Wedgewood queensware ashtrays and I loved them so much I asked if I could have them.  I was thrilled when she said “yes”!  Mine are just small 4 inch ones, but I do have a larger one the same color with three resting places for cigarettes.

I counted up all my plates, butter pats and platters this morning and I have 14 of them in total.  Most are in my kitchen above the counters and the majority are Old Country Roses or Petite Point Royal Albert.

It was thrilling for me to find out today that I am now and affiliate for Wedgewood, Waterford and Royal Doulton.  I love being able to share their glorious products with you from time to time.  It’s the season for giving and planning ahead for special ornaments, so I’m posting a few links here to show you some in that category.

Huntley-Moline Documents Now In Family Possession

You may have seen my posts on Facebook about the return of the Huntley-Moline documents to my possession, but if not, here is how the story played out.

How Bill Kirkland Found Me

Most family genealogists have their family tree information out on the web in several locations. Not just for ‘show’ or anything, but because we like to share our documentation and photos with as many family members as that might be interested.  The other benefit is that sometimes, as in this case, family documents can be repatriated when they’ve been lost or abandoned.

Such was the case with the Huntley-Moline documents that Bill Kirkland found in a building where he works near Sacramento, California.  This wasn’t a surprise exactly, but the puzzling part is how these important documents came to be separated from the daughter of Frank and Joyce (Moline) Huntley, Kelcy Colleen Huntley. (I haven’t seen “KC” since I was about 9 years old, so at least 52 years at this writing).

I believe Bill did a search through Google or on Ancestry and found our family information that I had posted. He sent me an email (a good reason to keep your email addresses updated on genealogy sites!) and asked if I was related to the people in the documents. Then came their homecoming a few months later.

I was amazed at the quantity of the original documents included in the mailing envelope, and thrilled to see the photos that were also included. One other item was my aunt Joyce’s WWII dog tags that were also found in this cache of mementos.

In coming days I’ll be going through each and every bit of documentation and gleaning out the juicy tidbits of names, dates and locations. Call it what you will, this is my way of “trolling” for cousins.  At least one cousin, Kelcy.

I will be eternally grateful to Bill Kirkland that he saw these family items and spent his time and effort to get them back in the family possession.
