The  information I have on my great aunt Ginny is very little. I found a 1930 "Crews of Vessels" census report for Pittsburgh, PA, ruminated on April 7, 11, and the 14th, in 1930, where aunt Ginny was a cook for the ship (ship names are hard to read) and her husband John A. Probst (1897 ~ 1967) who was a seaman on the same ship. They had tied the knot on March 25th, 1925

The hunt continues...

What a wonderful tribute. I was doing something like this for a month and then fell off doing it. Will have to get back to my calendar. Glad I found your blog will be back to read your stories

Gini,
Thanks to this post, I just found Shadowhouse Creations! I've got one more question -- did you have to buy photoshop to do these things? I noticed they have a lot of tutorials, based on photoshop.
