Naomi Vance Atterton by her daughter Laraine (my grandma)

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

My grandmother came from the Salt Lake City area to bring me a large box of family history documents, family photos, and books of remembrance. We spent over an hour going through all of the materials and figuring out what treasures were inside. The first thing that we found was a missionary journal from my grandma's grandfather. He served from 1898-1899. He and his family lived in Cardston, Alberta, Canada. I was able to see a picture of downtown Cardston from 1924 in which the only building with a sign was my great-great grandfather photography studio. After we looked through the missionary journal we talked about my grandma's aunt who compiled a history of my great-great grandfather's life from his journals. Next we turned to my grandma's parents. I learned that her father tried to have a photo studio in Alberta, but it failed. Next he tried labor, working in sugar beet fields. After that he worked as a painter for a while until the business owner moved. With all of these problems making a living, their family moved to Washington, where his brother lived. I had always wondered why they left Canada. Next, we looked through some of the other documents and found a compilation of patriarchal Blessings arranged by my great grandmother. She collected all of the blessings for her children, parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, and turned it into a patriarchal blessing family history. I quickly scanned them all, since these were the only copies that we possessed. There were 25 blessings altogether. Lastly we went through the four-volume history that my great-grandmother wrote about herself and her family. We talked about how she studied and became a nurse and worked at the municipal hospital in Cardston. And how she dated her future husband for four years while he built them a house. Also during that time she paid for her brothers to go on missions. I was also able to see many pictures from their early married life and pictures of my grandma when she was young. Last of all I saw my grandmas and grandpas high school graduation photos. I have already learned so much, and I have not even read the documents yet. My grandma left the box to me to see what I can do with it.

Life timeline of Francis Edward Atterton

Francis Edward Atterton was born on 11 Apr 1905
Francis Edward Atterton was 9 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Francis Edward Atterton was 24 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Francis Edward Atterton was 34 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.

Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
Francis Edward Atterton was 53 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

He served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his presidency dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union. As a member of the Democratic Party, Kennedy represented the state of Massachusetts in the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate prior to becoming president.
