Blog posts

After my last post, I checked the statistics on the number of posts over the years. I created a chart in Google Docs. Seems like I need to pick up the pace!

Happy New Year!

I'd like to wish all my [extended] family members a Happy New Year!

It's been awhile

I know it's been quite awhile since I last posted. Without offering excuses, I spent the summer packing and moving into our new house in Elgin. Then, about a week after we moved in, Mozart, my beloved little dog, was killed by a coyote! That cast a pall over the move. Last week we received word that my dad's brother, Lowell Cornelius, died after battling cancer. My mother, sister and I attended the funeral and it gave us a chance to catch up with our cousins and their families. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that several cousins have accessed this site. That gives me the motivation to get out of my funk and start updating this site...which I promise to do!

Young Arlene

A photo of my mother, Arlene Kostal Cornelius, as a young girl. This photo was found behind another photo of my great grandmother.

Coming soon to a brochure near you

I was recently contacted by an advertising agency about using this photograph in an advertising brochure. The client is a bank located in York, Nebraska and the purpose is to show how long the bank has been in business. We think this photo of Fred Astaire was taken in 1904 or 1905. More detailed information about this photo is here.
