Check out this great entry for the Family History Expo contest!

I received two entries for the "Value Meals on the Volga" blog contest yesterday and am happy to share the first one with you.

This photograph is from Pat Tiefenbach who writes, "My grandmother and her sisters lived in an old farmhouse in Ohio. Eighty years after they moved away, a tenant was cleaning the attic and found a cardboard box that had been left behind. This picture was among the family treasures inside. The box also contained old school books with signatures and a family Bible. Jackpot!"

Imagine finding this treasure eighty years after a move. I particularly enjoy the expression on their faces...the look in their eyes...I wonder what they saw or who was standing next to the photographer. The style of their dresses and the ribbons in their hair fascinate me. The girl's names are Mary, Bert and Grace. Thanks, Pat, for sharing your story.

Deadline for the contest is January 15. Winner receives two free tickets to the Mesa Family History Expo on January 22 and 23. For more details and the schedule of events, visit
