Family Scrapbooks
For many years scrapbooks were a source of entertainment. Ladies frequently clipped local interest articles, birth, marriage and death announcements and pasted them into books. Mrs. Alma Bower used old telephone books to paste her clippings in during the 1950ís. Her granddaughter recalled it being a Sunday afternoon event. Many contain genealogy tidbits. The Society holds a good collection of original/copied scrapbooks.
