Treasure Box

Last week I was in Miami, Florida for vacation and drove up to Davie, Florida to visit with my brother.  I hadn't been there very long when he said, "I have something I want to give. I was going to mail it to you but I am too lazy."  When I saw what was in his hand I exclaimed, "Dad's Cigar Box." This is what he handed me.
Dad's Cigar Box and a Record Jacket
Paper's in the Box

Paper from the folder
Some of the items include:
  • Dad's Certificate of Birth, Baptism & Marriages to both of my mothers
  • Copies of his parent's death certificates
  • My Mom's Annette Report of Separation of Service.
  • My Dad's Address book
The amazing thing is about a week before I went to Florida I thought, I wish I had my Dad's address book.  And now I have it!!  One of those Genealogy Serendipitous Moments!!!

More posts will come with details of the contents.

    PS We have oodles of old cigar boxes. My dad and grandfather used them to store all kinds of cool things. Now we do too.
