      Dear Roderick,

      ...This box was bought with the full intent of being distributed to the local
      Historical Societies and museums. But this would only be for the items that
      relate to the towns' histories. The old photos, birth records and items
      that pertain personally to your family should go to the closest family member.
      The person that sold these items did so with the phrase "Nobody cares." I
      didn't believe that for a minute, but I believe she believed that all the
      people closest to her, didn't care. Many people in families do not get the
      genealogy bug....

      I will try to send you as much information as I can before then. I will need
      to get some time to sort through this box.

      Thank you,

      Mary

      Dear Roderick,

      I too speak "a little" German, but these papers are in swedish. I can make
      out some of it, but most of it is also in handwriting and not very well
      written.

      You can of course look at pictures on the net, right? Maybe I can do what
      my natural family did and start a portion of a site on Ancestry.com where all
      the relatives can see many of the things in the box onvce they are scanned.

      Having one of my students be directly related to a person in the box was
      thrilling. I will be letting them have the original birth certificate to
      Katherine Luthold. It is this student's Great Grandmother. They said that
      many of the Gyger's are alive and well and living in Ohio. This family will
      be getting in touch with them and seeing how close they are related to the
      people in the box.

      No, I am not related to the people in the box. I suspect it was Elizabeth
      Geiger that sold the box. Many of the recent diaries are hers. They are
      filled with so many historical facts about the towns around here.

      I think the best way to share it all is to see how to start that internet
      site at Ancestry.com, scan the items and put them there for everyone to
      share. It will be hard to "fairly" distribute this box, but breaking it
      apart seems wrong too. The museums in the area wanted the box whole, as is,
      because of all the riches in it and the way it all relates to each other.
      They would be the best people to preserve and protect it. I will definitely give
      the
      birth certificates and other personal papers to the closest relatives....

      I will let you know when I either get
      items up on the web or ready to send you items to wherever you want them
      sent.

      Respectfully,

      Mary
