Thankfully most of us don’t need a washboard this #ThrowbackThursday. Do any of you remember a time before the electric washer? Happy #TBT!

Story Behind the Photo:

“The summer of 1953 was different than most. I remember going out into the countryside on many days. The farthest we cycled was to Panteg Hospital to visit Mum. In those days children were not allowed to enter the hospital as a visitor, so Mum waved to us from a window.“

You may have heard some people use phrases like “she’s my fifth cousin, twice removed,” or “he’s my second cousin, nine times removed.” What does this mean? Hopefully this will help...

An improved learning experience will be introduced with the new indexing program. Do you think this will help new indexers? Will it help you? http://oak.ctx.ly/r/1ag8g

Story Behind the Photo:

“Before Ellis Island, there was Castle Garden. All immigrants to America coming through New York came through here to be processed.”

What is your family’s history in coming to America?

Sorry Joleen, but info about Castle Garden/Castle Clinton on-line say it didn't become an immigration center until 1855. I am wondering where immigrants arrived pre-1855 in New York as I have several ancestors who came at that time.

Story Behind the Photo:

“When Lynnette came into the room ‘my heart went skippity bump.’ . . . She was the prettiest girl I had ever seen. She wore a light pink suit, and her hair was bright platinum blond. I was very impressed, but I do not remember speaking to her—at least no more than a brief hello.”

How did your grandparents meet?
