Ruth's Genealogy

“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”

Went to Walmart early, “got the milk, the eggs and the fabric softener”. Wonder what I forgot….?

Posted for Wordless Wednesday about my great-grandfather John Thomas Stanley’s 1918 newspaper likeness. GenealogyBank is such fun, you never now what you’ll find!

Also posted about the mystery of great-grandfather Stanley’s birthdate. This is a great way to gather all of the evidence together, thoroughly examine it and come to the most logical conclusion possible, by the way.

Converted a bunch of newspaper articles from .pdfs to .jpgs using PDF-XChange Viewer. More image editing in preparation for upload to my gallery.

Started searching for, finding and downloading GGF Stanley’s city directory entries.

Also started Thanksgiving cooking: Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sweet Potato Pie and cornbread for stuffing. Gotta get up early in the am to bake Grammaw Annie’s Coca Cola Cake, then get the two turkeys in the oven. My house smells delicious!
