Treasure Chest Thursday - Cradle Roll Certificate

Treasure Chest Thursday - Cradle Roll Certificate

Not to be outdone by my Mom, in saving old things, here is my Cradle Roll Certificate from the Star Methodist Sunday School, when I had just passed two months old. Oh! You say my Mom must have saved it so that I would have it now... You are probably right, now that I think about it. Thanks! I note that the Sunday School Superintendent, Rhoda Wilson, was an aunt of my wife - we've know each other since those days in the Sunday School in the fall of 1939!


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  3. Thank goodness someone saves things! My Mom and her Mom were both savers and thankfully, so am I. This is one beautiful cradle roll certificate. I wonder if I have one somewhere ;-)

  4. Goodness, that looks just like a cradle roll certificate my mom has hanging in her house. Hers is dated 1936, from the Episcopal Church in Hamilton, Massachusetts. I don't have a photo of it, but thanks for posting to remind me to get a picture!

  6. You sent me to the internet...seething with my obstinate parents that I too was not enrolled in something called a Cradle Roll. So to find out what I was so jealous of, I had to find out what was a Cradle Roll. Thanks to you and Mountain Genealogists, I was up half the night last night! Thanks. I love it when people send me searching and I can probably use the knowledge later in my research.

  7. I have no idea. They just show up, from time to time. I've wondered too, but have not been able to figure it out. Perhaps ask Thomas. ??
