But what was really fun was running into my grandparents' birth certificates on-line! Well, that is all but one that seems to be missing - no surprise there for Grandpa George. While not uncommon, I was surprised to see that the certificate for my dad's mother in 1910 had no given name until it was amended -- in 1973! Also, an alternate spelling appears for my maternal grandmother, "Lavon" along with "Lavaun" that she went with throughout her life.
I won't share the birth certificates here as I already put them on Family Search/Family Tree, and I wouldn't want to invite any identity theft (the crooks would have to be really, really old to pass it off, though). But I will share the page from the Ogden Standard that is the best evidence we have right now for dating Grandpa Vaughn's birth:
There it is up there, fourth column, near the top. Maybe it helps if I zoom in a bit:
That way we can kind of forget what the Elks are doing too.
Welcome to the world, Grandpa!
