I enjoyed doing my last Amanuensis Monday post so much, I think I’ll make it a regular feature of the blog. Today’s transcription is part of a mystery I’m trying to solve. It involves my great-grandmother on my father’s side, Resta (Reeves) Finch, wife of Chester Finch. This document popped up in my Ancestry hints about two years ago, and it immediately brought up several questions.
Today’s GeneaBloggers Tribe daily prompt is: “Wedding Wednesday – display those old wedding photos or scan wedding invitations and announcements, suggested by Carol of Reflections from the Fence.” I love old wedding photos! Unfortunately, I don’t (yet) have a huge collection of them, though I do have some wedding announcements and anniversary photos which I’ll probably post on other Wednesdays. For this one, though, I’m featuring my 2nd great uncle Merrill Johnsen and his wife Jennie [maiden name currently unknown].
