The Book of Me, Written By You - Prompt 2: Your Birth

The Book of Me, Written By You
Prompt 2: Your Birth 
"The Book of Me, Written By You" is a GeneaBloggers project created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog. The concept: a series of blogging and writing prompts that help family historians capture their own memories and write about themselves.

The prompt for week 2 is: Your Birth.

Do you have any baby photos? - I believe this photo, with Dad and the dog, at about 6 months, is the closest I have to a baby photo. We were poor farmers, but very happy!  Little money for film and processing! ;-)


Where were you born? Born in St. Anthony Hospital, Carroll, Carroll County, Iowa. Being born in the hospital was uncommon for our families, at the time. More often, at home.

Who was present at your birth? Just Mom and Doctor, I believe, then I joined them… long ago! ;-)

July 1 was a Saturday. Mom didn't make an entry in her diary that day, for some reason…   busy, perhaps?

My comments: I'm mostly pleased the event occurred. Details are not something I'm too concerned about. I did that with the daughters… ;-)

Families are Forever!


  1. Thank you, Alex! People seem to like this series of posts! ;-)

  2. I am enjoying your postings and have been keeping up with my own version. I suppose I should publish it as a blog entry.

  3. Probably should, Marta! ;-)

    Thanks for following my posts! ;-)
