The Lives and Times of Charles and Mary Jane Mead Bliley: A Scrapbook of Family Photos, Memoirs, Facts and Whimsy

Charles and Mary Jane Mead Bliley were my great grandparents. In July 2005, I created a small booklet for family members based on items which I collected in the previous couple of years.

This 26-page/3,500 word booklet is a collection of family photos, interesting facts, extracts from their memoirs, and historical information on the community in which they lived their adult lives. Included are family photos and photos of their farm on Station Road in Harborcreek Township, PA.

A PDF version of the limited-edition paper booklet is offered online. The PDF has many high-resolution photos which you can magnify to see the details more clearly than is possible with the paper version. This is a relatively large file at 13 megabytes, but I am sure you will find it to be worth the download time.
