Past and Present – History & Recipes

GenealogyBookWhile attending Heritage Fair in Truro, NS, two years ago, I spotted this little book on one of the display tables. At the time my thought were to capture a few recipes with my digital camera, so I could try them at home later.

When I came across information on the cemeteries in River John in the book, I snapped a picture to refer to in the future. My aunt Leila Tibert had married Abe Heighton from that area and settled there with him to raise their family. Both are long since passed on.

Here are a few of the snaps I captured that concerned local history. Although I failed to think about snapping a photo of the inside cover where I might have found more information about the publication, I did get a picture of the cover: Past and Present – History & Recipes by the RJ’s.Past and Present History - Recipes by the RJs cover
