Ah…the tropics!

Right about now I am almost be temped to kill to get to a warm clime. The weather lately has been crazy cold. Winter has definitely not been shy about letting itself be felt this season.

So to bring warm thoughts I am posting this fun document for my mother. It is a passenger list of her and her siblings along with her mother arriving in New York from Puerto Rico in 1950.

Margaret Shepard is my mother in this passenger list, her mother is Lois. You can see that David, the youngest, was born in Puerto Rico. The image is from Ancestry.com [Year: 1950; Arrival: New York, New York; Microfilm Serial: T715; Microfilm Roll: 7812; Line: 10; Page Number: 94].
