Gifts from Dorothy

Tree Heart Border


Every once in a while my sister Dorothy will come to my house bearing genealogical gifts. (My favorite kind =D) Her most recent gift was the guest registry from our father’s (John Weston Ramsell 1932-1970) memorial service held 12 November 1970, in Monterey Park, California, USA.

As I was reading through the signatures, I didn’t recognize most of the names, and I couldn’t help but wonder who these people were, and how they knew my father.

As I’ve mentioned before, my father died when I was very young, and consequently, I don’t know much about him. With that in mind, I’ve decided to post the signature pages here in hopes that one of the attendees might come across this blog post and be willing to “tell me a story” about my dad. I realize it has been 46 years, but…..
