CVGS November 29th Program Review - "Heirloom Show and Tell"

There were about 30 attendees at the "Heirloom Show and Tell" program on 29 November.

There were 11 CVGS members who presented their heirlooms, with the help of Gary who showed photographs of the treasures on the big screen.  The heirloom presenters and their heirloom treasures were:

*  Diane shared a quilt and photos of her grandson Giovanni since his birth one year ago.  She noted that she keeps newspapers for all of the family birth dates.

*  Bobbie presented a two-page 15-generation pedigree chart of her French-Canadian ancestry which she received from a relative.

*  Karen Y. brought a sterling silver sugar bowl and creamer service that was a gift to her grandparents, and a wedding gift to Karen.

*  Ralph shared a wooden Jesus Christ crucifix that his family obtained in Mexico.

*  Randy presented five beautiful copper enamel art pieces created by his mother, Betty (Carringer) Seaver during her life as therapy for having four males in the family.  

*  Susan shared a teddy bear made from a fur coat which she received as a child.

*  Susi showed a painting of her grandmother, and portraits of two more relatives. 

*  Joanna discussed a small Bavarian tea pot.

*  Nancy presented a circular family tree.

*  Gary showed mystery photos he has received over the years for which he doesn't know who provided them.  

*  Ceasar presented photos of Internet antique browsers from the first ARPANET web browser, Mosaic, and Netscape Navigator.

This was a fun program, and has become an annual program event.
