Not everyone will be interested in all of my stories, so they are divided into categories:
Books & Authors–Books I’ve especially appreciated. (Usually posted on Wednesdays.)
Depression Era–Stories from my motherline and from letters they wrote to their “Navy boys,” who enlisted in 1934. Most of these are set in the small town of Dexter, Iowa.
Dexter (Iowa) History–I help administer Dexter’s Museum FB page, and this is the handiest place to keep stories and pictures together. Museum season is from April through October.
Early Ancestry–Stories too early for Turn of Century.
Growing Up on a Farm–Dexter area 1950s and 1960s.
Kidney-Walker Genealogy (new)–Stories from my husband’s ancestry, including one about an anvil.
Miscellaneous–These didn’t fit anywhere else.
Turn Of Century–Motherline stories through WWI, mostly Audubon County and Guthrie County.
Uncategorized–tried to delete.
WWII–The main reason I started writing–to make sure the Wilson story is never forgotten. Dallas County: Dexter, Minburn, Perry.
