Remembering the Place where my Ancestors were Baptized . The Creek back in the late 1870's

We should take that Trip back to our Ancestors Hometown.


Cedar Creek

Take me back, Take me back dear Lord to the Place where they/I first received you, is a song that grandmother used to sing.

















BAAGG August Class Meeting



Placing your Hands on History is the Greatest Thing of all especially when it is your Family.

 Old Birth records still in a Box at one County Court House makes the trip worth while.

Where did Grandma Go to School?
Finding this old
School Directory with School Names in
1917-1918
 
This worn School Directory packed down in grandma's Cedar Chest helped us with schools in the Area during this time period. Sometimes there are old boxes in the basement and attic that no one has touch. Take some time and dust off those old boxes and chests to see what  treasures are  hiding  inside.
