John Ellingson's 90th Birthday Party

All of John Ellingson's EWGS friends are invited to come mark his Special Day with him on Saturday, June 18th, 3:00 to 5:00pm where he lives, Fairwinds Retirement Center, 520 E. Holland.  (Go north on Division; take the right fork at the "Y"; look for Holland and turn right.)  I'd suggest bringing a silly card for him and a big hug!

Images of America: New Book, Harrison, Idaho

Some of my favorite books come from Arcadia Publishing, and are the Images of America series. These books follow a standard format...... same number of pages, same number of photos, sepia cover, etc. I just read in our paper that there is a new one out for our area, one on Harrison, Idaho. This book joins others on "our area" of Idaho:  Moscow, Pullman, the Silver Valley, Latah County, and one for Farragut Naval Training Station. If northern Idaho is not your ancestral area of interest, click to and do a search for your state..... or place..... or county of interest. And they have singular titles, like for Castle Garden and Ellis Island. The cost for these books is a consistent $20 to $22. Try one...... you'll be hooked.

   Couldn't find the cover/photo for Harrison (too new?) but here are three of the others.
