Family Register ~ Benjamin & Eliza Veno

One of the items from Ruthie's that I received was a black leather bible that is very, very old.  In the center were pages titled, Family Register, to record family information.  I believe the writing on these pages that I scanned is by Gracie.

Ruth Landin's Autograph Book dated 1946 (High School)

Also among the photos I found an autograph book dated 1946 (high school) belonging to Ruthie Landin.  I scanned pages that were signed by names I recognized. 

("Gay" was Gracie's nickname when I was a little girl. I am sure this is Gracie)

This is from Betty Ann Veno (Forrest)

from Buzzy Herald

from Ruthie's best friend, Dotty

from Uncle Tom O'Rourke

Ruth Landin's Autograph Book dated 1944

And...Ruthie's Autograph Book from 1944.  I scanned pages written by people I knew...
(People put in the year they were to graduate which is why some show '47)
