Åter igen ett arkiv med ett konstigt namn. För ett tag sedan tittade vi lite närmare på Acta ecclesiastica, (se inlägg) och bland de handlingarna fanns det uppgifter om krigsfångarna under Stora Nordiska krigets dagar i Ryssland i början av 1700-talet. Även dessa handlingar kan knytas till Stora Nordiska kriget och är verkligt spännande om man har släktingar som varit i Rysk fångenskap.

Sometimes we take certain things for granted. We often don’t stop to realize what life was like for our ancestors. We may have skills that our ancestor did not possess. Recently I stumbled across some old photographs that made me stop and think.

In 1905 the automobile was a novelty. Very few people had ever driven one, much less owned one. After looking at a couple of photographs, I realized that most people did not know how to drive in those days.

The most misused Social Security Number of all time was 078-05-1120. In 1938, wallet manufacturer the E. H. Ferree company in Lockport, New York decided to promote its product by showing how a Social Security card would fit into its wallets.
