Sentimental Sunday ~ Book Page of Margarete Saule nee Kaiser ~




22 July 1888 ~ 28 May 1972
A page from my Haf ~ Kaiser Family Book 

As I created this page for the book I am putting together on my maternal Haf~Kaiser, line, I recalled the few wonderful memories of my great-grandmother, Margarete, aka Gretel. She was a very small framed lady . . . always very warm and loving to me . . . I am so glad that I was able to know her in my lifetime. She had such a sweet smile. I love these photos of her home and how I was there when I was little.

When I was three, mom (1933~2010) and I left Germany, I didn't see my great-grandmother again until 1967 at Christmas time and it was a most memorable time indeed . . . memories to create more pages for my book - I hope to share those pages from time to time here on my blog.

Ginisology's 6th Blogiversary ~




On this day, in 2009, I started Ginisology, you can read all about opening day on my → first blog post. I was pretty nervous! It's hard to believe it has been five, correction, six years since I started Ginisology, time has passed so quickly. I had big blogging dreams for the last five, I mean, six years, but as non-genealogy life stuff happened, I didn't blog as much as I would have liked. I appreciate all my genealogy blogging friends that haven't given up on me, continued to visit and left comments for me with the few posts I did manage to get out there.

I am currently working on a book in Blurb, documenting my maternal line . . . most of which are only photos and that's okay but I sure would love to know more of the stories. I hope to blog some of those pages as I go along . . . Ginisology will always be a place where I want to leave and share my family history discoveries.

Thank you all for the support you always give . . . I have met the most wonderful people because of this blog and the love of family history.
