What a wonderful idea Lorine.
I also religiously search eBay and eBay.ca for old family items, such as
bibles, ledgers, diaries, letters, photos, etc. I have only found a few
items over the years but wouldn't have those if I hadn't searched.
Thanks for a great share at Olive Tree Genealogy!

One thing I've noticed, being an avid antique hunter and
collector, is that quite often you will see antiques with a
genealogy interest. I always carry a small memo pad and pen
in my purse and recently I began jotting down the genealogy
notations or inscriptions on antique items.
I've put some of these online on Olive Tree Genealogy's NEW
Facebook page (it is one week old) at
This is a 2 line link and it will wrap in your email so
likely can't be clicked on. You must copy and paste both
lines into your web browser OR use this tiny URL for the
same page - you should be able to click on it in this
If you are interested you can join the Olive Tree Genealogy
Facebook page (it's free) to get daily feeds of Blog Posts,
articles and discussions. It's interactive, videos, photos,
etc are allowed. You can also post queries about pretty
much anything that is genealogy related if you want to join
You do have to set up a Facebook Profile if you don't have
one, but that's free too. And you can make your Facebook
profile PRIVATE so no need to worry about strangers getting
hold of your personal info. You can also put in as little
or as much as you want about yourself.
If you don't want to view the feeds and inscriptions on
Facebook, they are also on the Olive Tree Genealogy Blog at
(The blog is read only, it's not truly interactive except
for the comments section)
The most recent item I put up is a Silverplated Victorian
Coffee Tankard with Genealogy engraving for an individual
in Blair Ontario (I believe this is now part of Cambridge).
I'm hoping someone will recognize the name of an ancestor!
I have more inscriptions I'm going to type out over the
weekend so watch for them to go up on Facebook Olive Tree
Genealogy page and my Olive Tree Genealogy blog
