This blog focuses on photographs, documents and stories about my mother Hilda (Brunken) Kirmse, her descendants, ancestors and related relatives. Initial posts were based on photographs from albums that Hilda prepared.

The time period covered is approximately 1920 to 1950. This was from the time Hilda graduated from grade school to a decade after she was married.  There were also loose pictures in the albums with dates up to the mid-1950s.
