Family History Research Day


To start the day, we headed over to Grandma Huckleberry’s for a nice breakfast which included french toast.

After breakfast, we went down the road to visit with Great Aunt Jewel and Great Uncle Gene.

Aunt Jewel is basically a walking family history Wikipedia. During our last visit to Idaho, Hubs took some time to scan in over 120 old, old, old family photos. This time around Aunt Jewel sat down and told Hubs who every person was and a little about their story.

Meanwhile, Schäfer and I stayed outside. Trucks!

This is a “combo tractor”. Uncle Gene made it himself.

Watching for airplanes.

Getting water from the well.

Checking out the chicken coop.

Feeling a fresh, warm egg.

Attacking petting the turkey.

The day went well. Schäfer played hard outside and was willing to take a nap – even though we forgot Raffe. (I know!) Hubs was able to get all of the photos previously scanned identified and on great trust Aunt Jewel loaned him three albums of family photos for further scanning (some of the oldest photos of the Howerton, Teetzel and Houghton family–Shorel’s maternal ancestors), but they had to be returned to her within three days. Scan baby! Scan!

But the day was not over! We were invited to the Parkers for a delicious supper!

Every great day ends with huckleberry cheesecake!

    Aunt Jewel looks like such a sweet lady! How neat that she was able to identify people in the photos and share valuable, historical information with you!
