Mother's high school and high school diary
News reports today tell us the old high school building in Stafford, Stafford, Kansas burned last night, evidently from arson. My mother, Ruby Flanders Margheim Craine, graduated from Stafford High School in 1943. This is what the building looked like then:...

Family Bible entries hold surprises
I'm not in the possession of my Margheim Family Bible, but my grandfather John Ludwig Margheim (1900-1978) had copies of the family pages within his parents' Bible. This image shows the title page from the Bible and points out that it is a German translatio...

Connecting Through Find-A-Grave
At a recent monthly meeting of the Consultants who serve in our local Family History Center, I was asked by my friend Linda if I like Find-A-Grave or Billion Graves the best. I replied that I like each of them for different reasons. Without going into all t...

Story
Tagline
I'm passionate about my family, my church, and my genealogy.
Introduction

I've been a school teacher, bookkeeper, office manager, management secretary and I'm currently a parish administrator. I spend hours each day researching family history (Surnames are posted on my web site here). I'm the mother of 1 terrific son (of course I'm saying that...I'm his Mom!), step-mother of 6, mother-in-law to 5, and grandmother to 16. I'm married to a very loving husband, have a twin brother of whom I'm very proud, and am blessed that my dad's still living near me. My granddaughter Alyssa adds "You love God, Grandma". I love flowers, noodles, chocolate, beautiful music, good friends, precious grandchildren, and quiet time with my husband!

Bragging rights
I author 7 blogs and serve in 2 busy callings in my Church.

My husband and I shop in the Denver Deseret Book store every time we visit the city. We spend a lot of time browsing all the new additions to the inventory, shop for gifts, and are able to purchase anything we need in the way of Church materials. We love the store and the wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable staff. And I always bring home a dozen Lion House Rolls!
