Genealogy Photo a Day--November 2017 Day 24--"Book"...This little book (4" x 5") belonged to Will Proctor. After Richard Porter dumped Big Nana (see Day 20), she eventually married Will. This book and the autograph books were from his school days in Michigan. I don't yet know what took him to Alabama, but she also wrote in his 2 autograph books. The last picture is a page from each one. I love the illustration on the one and the poem his friend wrote in the other. #genealogyphotoaday #vanessasphotoaday1117 #vanessasgenealogy #ancestry #savefamilymemories #savefamilyphotos #genealogy  #genealogist #familyhistory #familyhistorian

I'm #thankful for my ancestors, and for family members who save #oldfamilyphotos and then pass them down to younger generations. I received a wonderful packet of photos & newspaper clippings a few days ago from some of my cousins, including several of my father and grandfather. But perhaps the most special treasure to me is the large #cabinetcard photo of my great-grandparents, Jacob and Bertha Vedder, taken on their wedding day! I have seen a photo of the wedding photo in a book, but never thought I'd have the original image in my hands. The picture I'm posting here doesn't do it justice - Bertha's gown is gorgeous - but when I get it properly scanned, I'll post that image. I'm so grateful to have this! Happy Thanksgiving!

These are my son's Great, Great, Great Grandparents Nils & Anna Christina Bengtsson on his mom's Swedish side of the family. They were born in the mid-1860s. Tonight at Thanksgiving dinner we got to see a book that was brought back from Sweden that traces that branch of the family tree back to the 16th century...a time when historical figures like DaVinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Machiavelli, Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scots and Ivan The Terrible still roamed the Earth. Pretty cool to see a part of his ancestry that has no connection to mine.

As one mystery closes (the whereabouts of my favorite Malaysian curry dish), another opens... My family has been doing a great deal of #genealogy research lately, and following Thanksgiving dinner tonight, the photo albums of long-passed relatives that were stored at my cousin’s farmhouse in Weston, CT, were perused in an effort to start filling in the gaps. Among the discoveries was this photo of “Drew”, we’re guessing from the mid-19th century, given his proximity to other photos of known relatives. My nickname is derived from my middle name “Andrew”, handed down from my father’s side, as I’m the third “John Andrew”. This “Drew” is from my mother’s side. “Drew” was an exceedingly rare name prior to the mid-1970s. And, so, the hunt for the story of my familial namesake begins... I hope all of you had a safe, gratifying, and  delectable Thanksgiving!

My 15th great grandfather was a priest here after serving as chaplain for Mary Queen of Hungary. He also studied and conversed with Luther and Erasmus. 😮 #crazygenealogy #genealogy #wroclaw #martinluther #erasmus #chaplain #johanneshenckel
The Pomegranate

Robert W. Hodgson said it best in 1917 of the pomegranate, that “Like the fig, vine and olive, it claims a place in the earliest annals of history and was classed in point of utility with the grain-bearing plants and honey, these constituting an important part of the food of the nations of antiquity in their early stages of civilization”. In the country where I was born, pomegranate is still an integral part of our culture. To this day, it is an important staple of food, its skin is used in medicine and textile production and the image of the fruit appears on fabric designs. As a symbol, pomegranate signifies an eternal life, health, fertility, and in poetry, it is synonymous with love.

For me, pomegranate also carries a special meaning. My mother’s name was Gulnar, which translates from Tajik (Persian) as “pomegranate’s flower”. The top portion of the fruit is like crown of the queen, the matriarch, the ancestor and the seeds inside signify many a descendants. What better image but pomegranate should be used as symbol of genealogy.

I have found today a fun fact, at least for me. This document is from the Nationale Militie, a dutch document of the army that the young man in this document has been called for duty. In this document is a small discription of the person, like height, color of eyes, shape of the nose and so on. This document is of the brother (Arend) of my fifth great grandmother Dirkje van Dijk. When you look at the document, you see in the left corrner some discriptions of the body, and also the color of the hair. In this case vosachtig (dutch for foxlike=red) hair. Look at the enlarge part uder haae. This is the funfact, because only my father had blond hair and red beard, my second son had very red hair untill he was three and I had a red glow in my hair. I was very curious on where did this came from....and now I have a lead...back to 1818..but still.I know...have strange curiousity...#genealogie #genealogy #zoekakten #steenwijk #netherlands #nationalemilitie

Princesa Ghodsee Alborz de Persia (Segunda parte)  Los últimos años de vida de este célebre personaje, se saben gracias a la cachaquisima Teresa Villamarin Campuzano. Una mujer perteneciente al linaje de los Campuzano Cordovez, prima hermana de Enrique y muy allegada  a él y a la princesa.Teresa relata que cuando Enrique se encontraba en su lecho de muerte, este dejó a Ghodsee al cuidado de uno de sus sobrinos llamado Fernando Cuellar Molano. Durante varios años, la princesa fue cercana a estos dos familiares de su esposo y tuvo una vejez muy digna y a la altura de una mujer de su clase hasta el día de su muerte, la cual, fue anunciada por Fernando en el periódico. Cabe resaltar, que el cónsul y la princesa no tuvieron descendencia.

Ghodsee Alborz de Persia fue una princesa en un país lejano,  expulsada de su patria al igual que todos los miembros de la familia real tras la revolución Islámica, en donde se derrocó a la monarquía y los miembros de la realeza y la nobleza Irani no volvieron a ser bienvenidos. Esta mujer representa un caso excepcional de como lejos de su país,  su familia y  su corte, siempre mantuvo sus actividades como princesa de una de las monarquías más  fascinantes de la historia mundial. #history #genealogy#Iran#Persia#Pahlavi #Qajar#Newyork#Bogota#Iranhistory#family#old#antique#picoftheday#follow#followers#royals#royalty

My grandfather and his younger sister Dale. At this point it was just the two of them, his older sister having died of smallpox the year before his birth. Unfortunately little Dale died of Pneumonia less than two months after this photo. I love the look of impishness between them here. Be thankful for the time you have now and your family while they're here. ❤️

This #picture is from January 2016 when I went back to the town of my birth (#Napa #California) to #interview my father’s #mother #Grandma Bernard (aka Grandma B and simply Gram). Spending a couple days with my #grandmother and talking to her about her life helped me to see my grandmother as the truly unique and inspiring individual she is instead of limiting my knowledge of her life to her being one of the best grandmother’s that has ever lived. I learned more from this interview than I had over the 36 years that preceded it. I’ll be forever #grateful that I can share with my #children and eventual }grandchildren the true story of who their #greatgrandmother was. #genealogy #genealogyresearch #familyhistory #storycorps #thegreatthanksgivinglisten

Today I am thankful for Ben & Hilda Atkinson, my grandparents. They married in 1927 and were together until he passed away in 1975. Sadly, I can't recall much about Ben as I was barely in kindergarten when he died, and what I recall of Hilda is also quit limited. But, because of all these old photos & letters they treasured, I have the opportunity to learn more about them and our ancestors. #thankful .⠀
Circa 1930s Salt Lake City, UT. Most likely at 33rd and Highland Drive.⠀

HISTORY OF THE HADLEYS: I’m the product of #Natives and early #Settlers blending. I wish I could say it was love that made me have these #Nativeamerican roots that have been #whitewashed...but I really have no idea. #16thgeneration #American My grandmother did #genealogy research before she passed(pictured) and found my ancestors with the Surname #Hadley had integrated into the #Creeknation Or #Cherokeenation.(its still a mystery) Later, during the Civil War, the #UnionArmy had formed a kind of swat team of #sharpshooters, one with a Native American with blue eyes with the the surname #Hadley. (I have ancestors from both sides of the conflict) When the government started the #trailortears the Hadley’s were absent from the #DossRolls and sent to reservations in South Alabama and Florida. After a few generations, some Native-descent Hadley’s tried to petition the Federal government for #retribution for the Indian Removal Act(?) and in that petition it ended up they were #Creek, not #Cherokee and the federal government deemed us not “native enough”. Today has always brought mixed feelings. I’m sad, But #thankful for my family keeping such good records even though we came to #America for #indenturedservitude and paid it off 7 years later then ran off with the #southeasterntribes. I’m also #thankful my mom naming me after such an #origin. Also, today marks my Grandfathers one year passing anniversary(the tall beautiful English/Swedish boy in the wedding photo who eloped to marry my grandmother which was a huge scandal because their breeding was so “pure”) #RIP #blessed #mixedcouple #oppositesattract #badass #matriarchalrevival #matriarchy I hope they found each other in the afterlife.

#genealogyphotoaday #thankful  c1912. Postcard -  hand written message on the back reads “ From Richard #Schwab. Thanksgiving dinner” and is addressed to Sophia #Schultz in #Detroit, #Michigan. Sophia was married in 1910 changing her last name to #Schnell so we can further reduce the time line of this photo from 1907 – 1909. Caroline Schultz, one of Sophia’s sisters, married into the Schwab family in 1890 but her husband’s name is listed as Johann Georg Schwab. Their son, born about 1898, was named Richard but would have been far too young at the time to be the man pictured here.

Carl & Doris Kunz. Carl is Johannes and Margarethe's (last post) 3rd child and 1st son. Doris Souder was, to my grandfather's surprise, an unrealized daughter of the American Revolution with quite a few patriots in her tree. I love how stylish they are in this photo, and how well it represents the fashion of the era. .

Has it really been 20 years? If I close my eyes I can still smell the combination of Brut and cigarette smoke that enveloped me with each hug and I can feel the prickle of your whiskers against my cheek. At Thanksgiving time more than any other, I can hear your growl to "keep the damn door closed!" And "no running in the house!" Or the ever classic, "you make a better door than a window!" should anyone have paused before your football games or John Wayne movies you surely knew by heart. You scared the hell out of me as a child. Intimidating and gruff. But I wish I had had the chance to meet you as an adult. Because there are so many life experiences a child just can't comprehend. You've been on my mind a lot these past few months as I return to my family research. As the only surviving Wright son you were so proud of your name and it's legacy, thrilled when my brother, the first Wright son of a new generation was born. And I wonder what you would think of a granddaughter, who is equally proud of her name, with no desire to change, with plans to see that name in print, with intentions that should I have children of my own that that name would be given to another generation? I wonder. . .

Thanksgiving 1940 with the Kunz family. Johannes Kunz and Margarethe Weckhardt Kunz living in either Chesnut hill, Philadelphia (but living most of their American lives in northeast philly after immigrating from Germany in the late 1800s) or in Churchville, Bucks County, pa. I'm always struck by the resemblance of my grandfather to Johannes, his grandfather. I have an old phone so I can't do more than one photo in a post, so stay tuned for two more photos as they go down the line. .

For today's Tie-the-Knot-Thanksgiving-Thursday I want to share a genealogy success story I'm truly grateful for.💕
Remember the two stunning wedding photos that the talented Marija from @myretrophoto  restored and colourised for me? They depicted my great-grandma Emilia and her brother Aleksander with their spouses in Luga, Russia, in 1904 and 1908 respectively.
.
.
Well, for years I've been cracking my brain, trying to find clues that would help me with anything on their family history, parents, siblings. I only knew that they lived in Luga in an Estonian community, got married there and during WWII had to resettle to Estonia. It was the one branch of ancestors I felt resisted my interference and played hard to get with me😅. I put it away again and again and let them breathe. And by miracle, the next time a new clue came up and I was back on track. It's been 4 years. .
.
Just recently information has been starting to reveal itself in waves! The always helpful Marija suggested I contact a genealogy expert (also called Maria) from St. Petersburg who might have access to the archive documents holding the final clues. Maria offers professional genealogy services for finding relatives in Russia. It just took her a couple of weeks and here they are! Emilia's full family including parents and grandparents! I am over the moon!🙈😲🤗 So I'm truly grateful that Instagram is not just a platform for sharing photos but also for supporting each other with advice! Thank you, dear @myretrophoto and @from_past_with_love for all your efforts, you both are amazing!👏👏👏 #tietheknotthursday #vintagewedding #weddinggown #weddingday #weddingwednesday #belleepoque #weddingphoto #oldweddingphoto #genealogyphotoaday#vintage #family #ancestors #familyheritage #ancestry #myheritage  #reallifetimetravels #timetravel #beautyfromthepast #womanthroughacentury #oldphoto #familyphoto #familyphotoalbum #genealogy  #vintage #vintagestyle #savefamilyphotos #savefamilymemories  #familyhistory #familyhistory #ahnenforschung #генеалогия #faces_and_style

Over the river & thru the woods, To Grandmother’s house we go!🎵
🍂
Wait! (Sound of screeching brakes) Do you have everything? Are you sure?
🍂
The holidays provide the perfect opportunity to gather great archive quality memories from your family. And yes, it can be the standard “What are you grateful for?” Be sure you have your video camera or a smart phone ready to capture it all! & family members who aren’t there? Can easily make their own videos & send!
🍂
Inevitably you will get this kind of response: “Video? Can’t I just write it down in an email?” Noooooooo! The point of this is to make a family collage of family members just being themselves on video mixed with footage from guest arrivals, home & food prep, family gathered around the table eating, and other things your family does on holidays. Create a beautiful video collage of all of it.
🍂
What about Aunt Gladys who refuses to be on video? I have a great solution for that as well in my next post. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Don’t do what I did & end up spilling hot liquid all over you & suffering 2nd & 3rd degree burns! Stay safe!

It's that time of the year when my USA friends are being thankful. Appropriately day 23 for #genealogyphoto is Thankful. Seems a good idea to me. Hope you enjoy your time with family and friends. Create new and share past family history. #GenealogyPhoto #GenealogyPhotoaday #genealogy #familyhistory
Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃 What would it be without a giant turkey pulling a pumpkin large enough for a chef with oversized utensils?! (I love these old postcards 😊) Good luck getting the bigger piece of the wishbone!

Do you have Pilgrim ancestors? 35 million Americans (11%) have ancestors 12-16 generations back that are one of the 51 surviving pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving in 1621.

A bit of insight into what I'm up to outside the world of Instagram. Currently working on my Masters thesis, the subject of which is Thomas Randolph, a prominent Scottish nobleman born in the late thirteenth century. His father, who until recently has been conflated with him, was also named Thomas Randolph. His grandfather was initially known as Thomas son of Thomas son of Ranulf during his youth, but decided that was a bit of a mouthful and so decided to go by Thomas Randolph. His great-grandfather was Thomas son of Ranulf, and his great-great-grandfather was Ranulf son of Walter. Imaginatively, he decided to name his own son Thomas Randolph, making five Thomas' in a row. Additionally, his mother's name was (probably) Isabel, his wife's name was Isabel, and his younger daughter was also called Isabel. As you can imagine, I'm having a lot of fun figuring out who is who when dealing with the Randolph family...

Genealogical enquiry is a fascinating extension of history and can provide interesting insights into individuals from ages past, but it can also be maddening attempting to disentangle individuals from one another and create accurate family trees. Historians often pass comment on what people did without fully understanding who they were, and Genealogy is a useful tool for revealing the webs of relationships and inheritance which characterised the Middle Ages. #genealogy #thomasrandolph #history #historical #middleages #medieval #medievalhistory

The first Lutheran Church in the State of Montana. 20 miles North of Big Timber and 24 miles south of Harlowtown, this church sits in an open prairie at the base of the Crazy Mountains where wind gusts of up to 80mph are normal. I set up a funeral at the cemetery and the wind was terrible. I stumbled around and my greens, and chairs kept flyiing into the grave and on to the other side of the cemetery.
