When her cancer reared it’s ugly head again last year, I quit blogging. Actually, I quit doing most everything. Now I sit at my keyboard… 2 months of grieving, 6 months as a hospice caregiver, 3 years of holding her hand through chemo treatments, and a lifetime of sisterhood…. all of behind me, and nothing… Read More Starting Over
To be honest, I wasn’t really sure that I would like Pinterest. Surely, this makes me an old fuddy-duddy, but I’m okay with that. Well, with the scanner being down and me having a few free hours what else was I to do? Of course I could have done some cleaning around the house but… Read More Genephemera Now Officially On Pinterest!
It’s finished and I am so happy, not only to know that it has been shared, but also that I can now move onto the next project! Check it out here at The Wilhoyte Scrapbook collection page!
This book of signatures was a philopena gift to Miss. Annie Morton from someone who simply signed ‘a friend’. Inside are handwritten well wishes for Annie as she prepares to leave the area.

Yay!! All scanning has been completed and uploads have began! It will take some time, but my goal is to get the entire set posted within the next few weeks. Look how far I have already gotten here at The Wilhoyte Scrapbook collection!
Well, no clear answer yet about the copyright law as it pertains to the work I do here. While I continue to find a definitive answer I decided to go ahead and add a few things that I am not worried about copyright law affecting. Check it out here at the Rose Fox Nusz Collection page!
Scanning is now underway! Now, after carefully separating the scrapbook, each of the pages is being gently positioned and scanned. Only the photographs with names will be posted in the collection here. Many of them are lovely photo shots of trips, such as an airport and landscapes, and while they are nice to look at,… Read More Scanning the Wilhoyte Scrapbook
Sigh…. today I just feel like venting to you. It has been terribly difficult to decide what to about the posting of the Rose Fox Nusz collection as there several items dated with in copyright laws that prohibit use for so many years. In my mind I feel this should be a non issue as… Read More Rose Fox Nusz Letters…
Well, it seems the only way that I will be able to scan in all of the identified photographs in the Wilhoyte Scrapbook is to take it apart. Really, this makes me sad as I hate so much to feel as if I am destroying a piece of history. In my head, I am trying… Read More Open Scrapbook Surgery…
Johnny, my fave antique dealer who I bragged on in another post, found me this awesome 1930’s scrapbook that features a bunch of photos and many of them labeled with identifying names! It came from an auction or sale in Prospect, Kentucky and a bit of research has already found the named individuals on the… Read More Wilhoyte Treasure Score!
Well, I hate to have to postpone when there was such progress being made sharing this collection but it seems I must. Due to the fact that many of the genephemra items are more modern articles, I need to do a bit of research on the copyright laws to make sure it will be okay… Read More Postponing the Rose Fox Nusz Collection

In this Sept 1929 handout you can find them urging members to continue to support the missionaries they have sent to India and publishing the vacation whereabouts and adventures of the congregation! As always, I have… Read More 1929 Bulletin From Louisville KY
Despite a bit of extra research not much came up during my research of our most recently added collection. I would love to have been able to learn more about this German family that found it’s way to Ohio. Hopefully any descendants who stumbles across this collection will know more than we do and will… Read More Sommer Collection Added!
It may not seem like a lot to you, but I promise that it excites me to say that we have almost 60 photographs now posted and identified on Genephemera! It’s an amazing start to our digital collection. Outside of photographs though, I am still adding heaps of other ephemera that will be helpful to… Read More Almost 60!
I was nosing around on one of my favorite crafts and handmade items shops when I stumbled on a new trend, well I suppose it’s new, that utterly broke my heart. Listing after listing for antique ledgers which had been pulled apart and were being sold by the page or small page sets!!! One of… Read More Selling Ledger Pages
ShareASale approved us for their affiliate program and now we just have to wait and hope that the merchant we are hoping to be approved by, does so also. If so, there will (hopefully) be some funds generated towards the purchase of more genephemera to share. The little bit that I can currently budget for… Read More Approved!
My mom is home and doing amazingly well for someone who suffered a stroke. While I sat up at night I spent time researching affiliates. In order to help finance further purchases for Genephemra to share, I wanted to make sure I picked a program with a solid foundation and strong reviews. Share A Sale… Read More Share A Sale…
As I write this, my mom is in ICU at our local hospital. Until things calm down around here I will not be posting anything new.
