Amanuensis Monday: Memorable Events

Posted by on January 23, 2012

John Newmark of the Transylvanian Dutch blog started a genealogy meme of Amanuensis Monday in February 2009. He defines amanuensis as a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.

My maternal grandmother, Ruby REINHARDT, who married Rueben HENNEKE, kept a bride book. I’ve previously posted what she wrote about “Our First Meeting” and “Our Engagement” On the “Memorable Events” pages she had the following.


April 19, 1940 – Met at G. Gohmert’s.

Oct. 5, 1940 – First date.

Oct. 16, 1940 Became engaged.

March 19, 1941 – Engagement announced.

April 1, 1941 – Shower at Club House

April 5, 1941 – Wedding.

June 5, 1941 – First day away from home

June 18-27, 1941 – First trip together

Aug 18, 1941 – Plans for baby

In the interest of privacy, I’m not adding the last entry – the birth of my Uncle Bob!
