      Hi Everyone

      I've been very busy catching up after my trip to the Boston FGS
      conference. It was a great experience and I enjoyed attending some
      of the workshops and the Exhibitions by sellers. We drove so took
      two weeks total to get there, attend the Conference, and come home.

      Some of the latest items I've added to my websites since returning

      1. New additions to the collection of letters on Past Voices -
      Letters Home.

      2. New additions to the collection of 1860s and 1870s Photo Albums

      There are some gorgeous photos in these albums, and I am offering a
      quality reproduction service so as to allow all descendants to have
      copies of their ancestors photos. The tintypes are one-of-a-kind as
      that was the nature of a tintype - it substituted an iron plate for
      glass and is one of a kind. No copies could be made from a tintype.

      These letters are so wonderful to read -- they speak of illness in
      the family, deaths, births, crops, weather, family and friends. I

      me in email at olivetreegenealogy@... All letters remain the
      property of the individual submitter.
