I make first contact with the State Archives of Mykolaiv in Ukraine, in search of documents pertaining to my Anflick ancestors. The archive has apparently accepted my request and I am currently awaiting the result. Work continued on transcribing the descendants of Peter Mumma from Mumma.org to my own web site. We learn of the untimely demise of Herbert L. Mumma in 1905 in a manner I thought happened only in action movies and cartoons. Lastly, I shout out a pair of my podcast inspirations, Scott Fisher and Lisa Louise Cooke.
Work on transcribing the vast database at Mumma.org into my family tree software with the present focus on the descendants of Frederick Mumma (1767-1822) and a future focus on the descendants of Johannes Mumma (1763-1829). Roxborough High School administration offers provisional approval for an after-school genealogy club, to be facilitated by yours truly—but only if yours truly can drum up enough interest. Lastly, and ancestor spotlight on Earl and Esther Hable. I supposed you could call them a "power couple" that stayed together in the face of great physical challenges.
I'm quite a bit behind on my digests! All photographs from the month of April were taken on various days at Abington Friends Cemetery in Jenkintown. I was not able to pull up many details on those whose gravestones I photographed, and those I were able to discover may have been too personal in nature to feature. In the meantime, enjoy this month's featured gravestone photograph, that of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Noble. It is the oldest in the lot.
