Here’s something amusing I’ve discovered…. When I search through census records for my ancestors, I also take a look at other families “in the neighborhood.” In the 19th century and early 20th century people didn’t venture far from home when they married and siblings often lived close by to parents and other siblings. So, I always take a look around. Sometimes I don’t find a relative. But, I do find some pretty funny names!! Here are just a few names that will bring a smile to your face:

Weir Strange
Fanny Rumble
Precious Darling

What were their parents thinking?

This packrat has learned that what the next generation will value most is not what we owned, but the evidence of who we were and the tales of how we loved. In the end, it’s the family stories that are worth the storage.
