Gazing Into the New Year

This photo was taken at the top of the Munster cathedral in Switzerland  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basel_Minster.

This is my wife Alice.  I trust that you all are looking into the New Year with hope and joy! I pray if it holds pain for some of you that the pain will cause growth in some way.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Visiting The House Where My Great, Great, Great, Great Great Grandfather Lived in Germany

This wasn’t my favorite photo of the year, but visiting this site in Hagnau, Germany was a highlight.  My ancestor Jacob Raber left this home in 1836 for America when he was 5 years old.  The exact generation and date I couldn’t confirm since my genealogy book is packed away in America somewhere!
