Moving away from the paternal line of my father, I am exploring his grandmother's line and will follow other maternal lines on my father's side, as long as I have the patience. And patience it takes! Oh so hard to cherchez les femmes!
My great-grandmother, Catharine Sampsell Kaser married at eighteen and was surrounded by Kaser family from then to eternity.

There's a lesson here. Don't assume you know all you need to know about a relative, even when you knew them personally.  Research uncovered lots of surprises about my uncle Truman Bucklew. #52Ancestors #familyhistory

The "personal column" can be very helpful in understanding an ancestor's life.  Small town newspaper personal columns were not the same thing you may think of today.

Wish I had seen this to share earlier. A great Passover explanation by the inimitable Pam (I'm not religous) Mandel.
Share a meal, tell a story, drink some wine. Passover is the best holiday ever.

I think I've found my favorite Soda Bread recipe, but it is more an American melting-pot soda bread than an Irish soda bread.  Once it arrived in America, that Irish recipe got all polyglot.
Soda bread and corned beef are the foods we think of in relation to Ireland, yet the American version is not really traditionally Irish, but Irish-American.

My uncle, Keith Kaser, pictured here on top left, at his father's tin shop in Killbuck Ohio, became a County Clerk of Holmes County, Ohio. I remember him as my #52Ancestors contribution this week, relying on many newspaper articles about his activities.
My Uncle Keith Kaser struggled to make a living early in his life, but built a political career.

Have you ever frozen fruit pie filling to drop into a crust later. Works like a charm. Just make a batch of Perfect Pie Crust (recipe linked in article), unwrap the foil, and Voila!
An adaptable frozen pear pie filling recipe, including my variations. Inspired by a vintage Mennonite church cookbook.

Love Chicago.  View from Hancock Tower at twilight was awesome.  Barbara has a great series of pictures of all the great architecture of Chicago at this site.
Hancock Tower, with its distinctive zig-zag black facade and twin white towers, looms over the crenelated towers of Chicago's Water Tower

I would really like to tell you the tragic story of my 3 x great grandfather's family after the Revolutionary War, but once I started telling the story, I realized that something did not add up.

The Americanization of the #Palatine Immigrants, even when it meant going to war one more time. My 3 X Great Grandfather served in the Berks County Pennsylvania "Old Man's Company". #52Ancestors
How my German great-great-great grandfather, Johannes Wilhelm Butz became William Butz, an American entrepreneur and soldier in the Revolution.

What a weird and interesting place!
At the southernmost tip of Norway is the mysterious ancient Lista landscape, frequently hidden beneath a thin veil of ocean mist.

Bistro Mazarin was "our" cafe when we rented an apartment just down the street. We enjoyed several light meals there, and were impressed that we could hang out as long as we wanted, even if we only had hot chocolate or pommes frites. The pommes frites, by the way, were the best I have had anywhere in the world! I wrote about it at my blog, A Traveler's Library.
