I dropped off the first of Amy Coffin's 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy questions to my grandma when I visited in June. She had them all filled out for me when I visited her at the beginning of the month. Although most of her answers were along the lines of "I don't remember," I did gather a few new details about her life.
Here's what I learned:
Her first car was a green Chevy Impala.
She had a white mouse as a pet, but she doesn't remember its name.
My grandfather was apparently in the newspaper working on the Ohio River Front. I'd love to find that. Someone needs to digitize Cincinnati newspapers.
I already knew about grandma's love of dark chocolate But she really wanted me to know since she wrote it twice for her favorite sweets.
