Re: Social/historical contexts of guests
In Response To: Names & Addresses from a guest book ()
Do you know why they kept the book? Can you place it in an historical or social context? The reason I ask, is that you might consider, if you haven't already done it, researching how your ggrandparents came to know these individuals and/or why they visited their home. For researchers attempting to trace their ancestor's associations and travel, it might help to understand part of their lives.
Do you have photographs of the individuals as they visited your relatives? If so, I could easily picture a memory book of sorts, of the photos and guestbook entries, with perhaps biographical information to enhance it.
...just random thoughts after coming back from a restful holiday.
