52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your memories on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
Week #4 – Home
Our house in Pomona was also 3 bedrooms/1 bath but had an attached 2 car garage that my grandfather helped convert....making a 'playroom' and an extra bath plus laundry area. We were in 'hog heaven' with all this space. My parents lived in the house for 31 of the 48 years they were married. They both died in the house, 6 months apart, in 1987. My cousin's daughter and her young family bought the house from us and lived there for several years. The house is still there (drove by it about 5-6 years ago) - and if you look close while wizzing down the I-10 you might be able to see it!
Pomona is where I lived between 7th and 12th grades....where I eventually moved away from to get a job, met my husband, and marry.
