You may remember last year when I started going through a box (one of many) of my mother’s writings and found her self-made book, ORIGINAL WRITINGS BY CATHERINE SHUMAKER BRINSON.
This involved finding time to transcribe all the poems and formatting them properly for publication. For historical authenticity, I also included photos of the original pages in her self-made book, even though it made both versions cost more. Genealogists consider it essential to include the original evidence whenever possible.
This is the second book in “Catherine’s Genealogy Series”.
In the book are 36 poems that she wrote, mostly during the 1990s, inspired by life events or whatever she happened to be doing at the moment. They’re divided into categories; Whimsy, Canticles of Praise, Family, Nature, and Unfinished Symphony.
One of my favorites is “The Family ~ 1949”, which is the story of the week her grandmother Florence Amanda Shuler Shumaker died, and is rich in genealogical information.
