This is the cover to the Webster Dictionary. I am not sure of the date. It is a thick cardboard cover and on the back is a lot of family history information. We have all heard of families writing in the family Bible, but a dictionary?
The back contains information written by my grandma Rose Tregler. She wrote birth and death dates and places, social security numbers and citizenship petition numbers for some of my relatives! The people include Jaroslav Tregler, Sr., Jaroslav Tregler, Anna Tregler, Rose Tregler, her parent’s names, my aunt and my mom.
I wonder why grandma would write this in a dictionary……. Where are some interesting places you have located family information?Tweet
