1906 This Elaborate Baptism record for my Grandmother was wrote in German although she was in US . I have no idea why it is in German . But it important part of heritage and I love having it :-) On top of photo is John the Baptist baptizing Jesus .
No Idea where this belongs in catagories ? Maybe Religious Items needs to be added ?

    Simply beautiful. I have a soft spot for these types of items.

    Years ago I found several items like these at an antique shop. I used some old family tree skills to track down a descendant. It was a very good feeling to have been able to reunite a family and their treasures. I wrote of it here:

    Thanks eccentric ! I am sure link is allowed and very interesting that you cared enough to track family . We all hope our family history stays with our families don't we . I am so fortunate to have so many things keep in family . Now if My Mom wouldn't have thrown out my letters I wrote as a child to movie stars and my shoes the Everly Brothers stepped on I would be happy. if you find a funky pair of gold shoes in your travels they might be mine :-) Thank you for stopping at my post and making such a nice comment !

    Kevin my Grandmother was Lutheran and although she was born in US she spoke some German and but more than that she sang in German . I have her recording her childhood songs she is singing in German just before she passed away . Her Father was German and Mother Scandinavian. She never spoke German around us unless she was singing which she did a lot as she worked farm. Our Family settled in upper WI it was the first homestead from Germany or actually Prussia it was a very small farming community and it still is ,many of my family still live there and they have a cemetery named for our family it is rather small but she was taken back there as well as many of my family to be buried . She was not Missouri Synod Lutheran though she was Evangelical Lutheran Synod. I went to her church later in her life and no one spoke German there .
    Very interesting and I thank you for sharing the question why it was wrote in German .
    How did you do at the show ? and when will it be aired do you know yet ?

    Kevin, that is exactly how I thought that would go. Too bad, I think it didn't start out that way...fame. I do think that the show made every one think their hunk of junk is worth a million dollars.

    So wonderful that you have audio of your GM singing, I would imagine her sisters did the same thing. You could do a video of her singing & a slide show with some of the old family photo's.
    I'm posting this while on our trip to Saskatchewan, close to half of the people in Saskatchewan are German-Canadians. Most of these are of Russian descent many are from the U S upper mid west region. There are a large number of Lutheran Churches & cemeteries here.
