A Happy New Year's & a little bit of family history :)

Tomorrow might be a new year, but tomorrow is always another chance to start anew. 2013 was a wonderful year for me, but here's hoping 2014 is even better, for us all! Here's a little throwback to New Years' past...have a fun but safe time tonight everyone! Happy New Years!

From The Queens County Sentinel from Jan. 6, 1898, a short story about a New Year's party thrown by my great-great grandmother, Delia Dauch Berg. My 3rd great grandfather, Thomas Dauch, was the guest of honor, and my great-grandmother, Amelia Berg Raynor, (listed in the story as Mildred E. Berg - her nickname was Millie) was also there. She was 13 years old.

  1. Ah, I wrote a snarky comment and it didn't post...let me try again...

    Nowadays the only parties that seem to make the papers are the ones broken up by the cops. Hmm, I bet I could dig up one like that for my family...New Project! Happy New Year, Cousin Mary. Happy New Year.
