We've started sorting the next box and made a wonderful discovery.
We found some ofﬁcial looking paperwork mixed in with the photos.
When I read it I discovered a piece of history about my Grandmother
that my mom had mentioned to me once or twice but I had never seen
any proof of.
The attending nurse who was at the birth of my grandmother
took it upon herself to name my grandmother Olga Burgess.
Where this name came from no one knows but they didn't like it.
My Great Grandfather had to dictate a letter and have it notorized to say
they did not name her and had been calling her by the name Winifred.
As I'm going through these pictures, I'm starting to think I may need to
ﬁgure out a way to divide them up so each of my kids can have
some of their family history to take with them when they finally
go out on their own.
Project Past Life is turning into quite an amazing journey and
it only promises to get better.
