The purse

This was my great grandmother Joanna’s.  I call it a purse but I’m not sure what the correct term for it is.  It was passed down to her youngest daughter Joanna. Inside is quite a bit of  pieces of family history.

A lot of it involves my great grandfather’s death.  There is also bills.  Old tax and utility bills.

1944 was the year 18 Newton St was bought by my great grandparents.  That October my great grandfather died.

This is the funeral book from the services for Joseph Switkowski.  I posted more pictures from this here.
