Duerksen Family Photos

The back of the photo of this baby girl says, "Thelma Jean Duerksen" "This girl is missing, Mrs. Mary Duerksen Wiebe sister."

If anyone has any information about this girl please contact me. If she was my grandmother's sister then I doubt she is still alive. I would still like to know what happened to her. 

If you can identify the people in the photos below please let me know by leaving a message or contact me via email.

Restored Photos of Great-Grandparents

Recently I've found my father's cousin. I've talked with him via telephone and email. I had a wonderful surprise when he mailed me copies of photos of my great-grandparents. The photos are very old and have faded and discolored. I asked my father's cousin to email me a copy of the pictures so I could restore them. He did and below you can see the results.


I was thrilled to have had the chance to see my great-grandparents. I felt like I'd won the lottery. Thank you so much Doy.

Purging the Office

Won't write much because I'm cleaning and moving things from my office into other rooms so I can bring in an armoire in the morning. I've worked in this pig sty that's cluttered beyond tolerance for far too long. The papers come faster than lightening. You'd think with two shredders I'd be able to manage wouldn't you? You'd be wrong.

Must get back to the cleaning and moving right now and hope I finish this with before and after photos. I'm ashamed of the before because it was a rats nest. If you've ever watched the program "Neat" then you know what my office looked like.

I'll get back next week with an update.
