We were all very excited to see pictures of Elias Ree's carpenter's ruler and carpenter's apprentice wooden puzzle piece. Wonderful pieces to think were once in the hands of our illustrious ancestor (see photos -from Elias Rees descendant, Marcus Tiddy).
I'm busy preparing a booklet of the recent "Akins Family" for a cousin, Joyce, in California. We both have David Akins & Sarah Minerva Ells as ancestors. I'll be visiting her soon so we can compare each other's old Akin photographs and try to identify them. I'm eagerly awaiting Joyce's stories of old, and I hope to record them using a recording attachment for my iPod.
Lots to do and learn.
