As I read this, I was reminded of the time I took a photo of a really adorable headstone, in the shape of a truck that had been created for a boy who had died at the age of 7 in 1993. Initially I thought I'd create a FindAGrave memorial for it, but instinctively I felt uncomfortable about doing that and I didn't (though I still have the photo). I'm glad others agree with that instinct.

I agree, I wouldn't have posted it either. Children's graves always bother me anyway. Thanks for your comment, Elizabeth!

Tuesday's Tip ~ Losing American Citizenship by Marriage
I have been doing some research for a sister-in-law and came across an interesting item that doesn't occur in my husband's ancestry (or mine). The following image is from the 1920 U.S. Census. The household is for my sister-in-law's great-grandmother, Sadie...

Great photos! And you even have a copy of that Boston Globe! I do remember the Blizzard of '78. In fact, I blogged about it a few years ago at http://frommainetokentucky.blogspot.com/2011/04/52-weeks-of-personal-genealogy-history.html and it's one of my most-visited posts.
I actually don't, being only three years old at the time. But my parents mentioned it often, and below are a couple of photos of yours truly as a tot amid four foot snow drifts in Quincy, Massachusetts after the storm: Th...

Thanks, Elizabeth-- yup, anyone who lived in the northeast at the time should remember that storm! I found this image of the Globe online-- wanted to actually download it from the Globe's archives, but they wanted $10 for a 1-month pass-- wasn't able to purchase an individual download of just the article. So I made do with this.
