Amanuensis Monday: Showers

Posted by on June 4, 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.

I’ve been looking at my maternal grandmother’s (Ruby REINHARDT) Bride’s Book.  I’ve talked about my grandparents’ first meeting, their engagement, and memorable events here and here previously.

On the page for Showers is a news article for “Mrs. Rueben HENNEKE, a recent bride” given by “Misses Selma and Maurine RABKE and Mesdames M.A. H. MUELLER and Victor GOEBEL.”
