This is the cover of the Jenne Family Bible.  
Sent over from Germany for the American Genne's to start their new lives.
Decoding the pages took several years, and lots of family discussions. 
I give special thanks to my Mom - Carol, Aunt Bim and cousins Janet & Joanie.
Through the papers, pictures, maps, letters; endless cups of tea; dozens of giggle fits; we think this is a version to share with the rest of the family.

I have lots of other Aunts and Cousins to thank - I will list them as the pages they helped me with are explained.  It is a continual effort, one of constant discovery - with every picture, every letter, every bit of new information.
