Someone’s celebrating a birthday today! And in this lovely Halloween picture… he stole my hat.

Halloween 1984

Tis the season… My brother and I on Halloween in 1984. Shots from the period fascinate me as I look at his children and see the resemblances. Also, given where we live I probably went out in that costume and a winter coat… kind of defeats the purpose but that’s fairly normal for a Michigan Halloween.

Happy hunting,

Jess

First Library JobI’m running a little behind in my planned posts but this Family Almanac post was inspired by the comments of WMGS’s featured speaker Thomas McEntee this past weekend. He rightly pointed out that family history researchers often forget to preserve their own story in the hunt to find the out about their ancestors.

So, this week’s post marks a milestone for me… This week marks the 11th anniversary of starting my first job as a public librarian.  I started my career at the Krause Memorial Library in Rockford, Michigan which was the perfect place for me at the time both for my genealogy research and my development as a librarian.

The photo is probably from that Halloween when I decided to dress up as a hockey fan for the holiday.

Happy hunting!

We’re closing in on Halloween so here’s a blast from my past. My brother in I in 1982… clowning around.

Happy hunting!
