You've discovered my secret place, my secret room. . .

On the side [from genealogy], I'm a former living historian. I taught units of history in elementary schools, my favorite period being the Middle Ages. I decided that I should have a room dedicated to that period of time simply because I couldn't stand not having something to do with castles and knights! [I think I must be spoiled.] I also must admit, since this site has to do with my grandparents' home, that neither of them had anything to do with living history or the medieval period.

Since I have this compulsion to brazenly indulge myself, but still need to stay on topic, this series of pages will be used for those Bowers/Bauers/Baur's, etc. 1650 or earlier and still in their country of origin. To that end, we will cover the Middle Ages and period of Renaissance here.
