My Margheim family were strong and devoted members of the Lutheran Church. I say this as an introduction to the library of books I've inherited. Many are Lutheran catechisms, Lutheran hymnals and prayer books. Many are the text books the family had in school. I'm posting a few pictures here, but have created an album here on Picasa Web of the books I've brought home to date. If you see a book cover, the following photo shows the inside of that book, or the name of the family member who owned it.
|My dad's "Student" Bible from his teenage years in the 1930s.|
|John and Amalia "Mollie" Koleber Margheim with sons Ernest at left and Alfred at right.|
|Notice that my Uncle Alfred wrote "if you want to know my name, look on page 200".|
|And on page 200, he wrote "did you ever get fooled well you did this time".|
This was probably the most special "find", because inside were papers of homework that Uncle Alfred had completed. They were dated Feb 22, 1933. He passed away 22 March 1933.
