When mom made these for him before she used the Splenda - dad wouldn't eat them - said he'd prefer "no sugar". > Your mom could use Splenda > for your dad and it would still have the sweetness. > I thought they were okay without any - just different. So Krapfa or Krapne is a "Slav" word. Always nice to find out what area the different names are coming from. Isn't that what Sarma is also, or was that one Hungarian. My mom hasn't used the word Sarma in a long time, she changed to Cabbage rolls since th
I have to say I agree with you Dan .... and then I start thinking - wow, I must be getting old. (no disrespect meant) - but you are right -- they were family oriented in so many ways. We tend to live our lives separately in so many ways. And then with each family only having their 1.8 children, it doesn't make for much of a big family gathering, does it? Life changes and I think we are all trying to recapture what we see as the best of the old days by sharing our history with one another. S

Heidi, Thank you for sharing your story, thank goodness there was a happy ending, in spite of a difficult start. I know we've been talking about [what seems to some of us as sadness in] pre-arranged marriages for our ancestors, something we don't deal with today. Which is ironic because in spite of how we may perceive this custom, they stayed together, until death [for the most part]. Alice mentioned: "It appears, however, that it was thought men were too weak to resist the temptation and women could n

Hello Everyone, I made the 50% payment for all the molds today. He thinks he'll have them completed next week. He's starting to get busy with requests from his boating customers for repairs and what not, but wants to finish the molds first. He said he'd be calling Monday at the earliest and by Thursday at the latest.

511. Re: [DVHH-L] Women & Childbirth [1]
Eve, 'Homemade' did not arouse good fellings in me during the first 9 years of my childhood! My mother's side job (besides the family, yard, garden, sewing/cooking/baking/ laundry with no running water or electricity or central heating) was raising two batches of 500 baby chicks, caponing them, butchering, and dressing most of them. That took a lot of chick feed which came in feed sacks. Never allowing anything to go wasted, we had feedbag kitchen towels, feedbag tablecloths, feedbag sheets, feedbag
512. Re: [DVHH-L] Smelling Flowers & Michigan Relatives & Sugar Beets [1]
Beth, it's strange that you should mention Seiler relatives in Saginaw. We have been in touch regarding that name and couldn't find a connection. Well, the mother of the great uncle I have been talking about was a Seiler--maybe your Georg Seiler had a second wife and my Barbara Seiler was born in Apatin? Alice, great suggestion about putting names and dates on the backs of pictures. Also, if anyone has any old letters and even envelopes lying around, don't throw them out !!! They can be a tremendous sou

514. Apatin pictures [1]
Thank you all: Nick, Rosina, Rose, Alex, for your excellent observations and educated guesses. The palms are definitely there, I missed them. The pulpit, too. Certainly the bricked alcove behind the altar is permanent while the altar is temporary. Look carefully at the image behind the altar between the 2 center candles. It is an image of Jesus (the Sacred Heart of Jesus). This makes me wonder if it is not a dedication of the beginnings of the new church begun in the late 1930's and never completed

519. Brick wall-Herman-Kolut/Ringdorf [1]
Hello I'm looking for any information about an ancestor of mine. I would like to find his parents to see where they came from before they came to Kolut. His name is Franz HERMANN born in Kolut/ Ringdorf Serbia about 1778. He died in Kolut on 11 Oct 1847. I have his death record from the LDS microfilm, all I can make out are his name and his third wife. Did they list the parents of the deceased on the death records back then? His 1st wife was Ottilia BICHLER married in 1807. His 2nd wife was

I'm glad everyone is receiving them so quickly. I want to attach every version of the recipe to the ones I'm giving to my relatives for Christmas. I just have to figure out how - I wanted to do something other than your normal recipe card, and printed out vs. hand written. Although I've grown to treasure samples of relatives hand writing - so maybe I should hand write them out. Or handwrite our family recipe and print all those on the recipe page.

Hey Alice, Another Shipshe fan, good to know. When do you usually make your trek? My gal pals and I go around the end of June, before the 4th.

My husband and I discovered the E&S sales place with all the Amish bulk food - it was so neat because no one else went there - Now it is bigger and more crowded. Everyone has discovered our favorite place. I didn't mean to make it sound like it was the same as shopping in Birch Run - other than
