Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair November 4, 2016

img_1624   Here are my purchases from the Seattle Book Fair back in early October.  Busy times – I have just unpacked the bag containing my purchases.  I loved the Fair – and would have liked to repeat the experience in Boston this past weekend when we were on the East Coast.  Can’t have too much of a good thing – but maybe not enough money or room in my suitcase!  There are so many books out there I want to read and/or collect.


It’s All Too Easy March 5, 2016

Here I am, housebound recovering from hip replacement surgery.  I’m finding it all too easy to buy books to add to my genealogy collection.  Just search on Amazon.com and lo and behold – there’s a great book – the virtual bookstore!  Here are some of my finds.

A book about Nantucket

A book about the descendants of Widow Elizabeth Curtiss

A book about the wave of English ancestors coming to America in the 1600’s

Pictures to follow.  I have photos of each book  but I haven’t figured how to access my photo files and show them on my blog.

Pictures of my cat yes.  solstice 016
