Dorothy’s Wedding Record Book

I’ve had Dorothy’s 1940s “Bridal Chimes” wedding record album, which I purchased from Antique Gallery, for a couple of years.  It’s a beautiful record book published by C.R. Gibson & Company in Norwalk, Connecticut, and purchased as a gift from Dorothy’s friend Marie at The Goldstein-Migel Company in Waco, Texas.

Using both and Facebook, I was able to find Dorothy’s son Bob and sent him a message on 6 November 2015.  Almost a year later, on 27 October 2016, I received a reply. Bob and I spoke via Facebook and phone and he put me in touch with his brother, Richard, who lives nearby and could pick up their mother’s wedding book in person.

The book was returned to Dorothy’s family on 8 November 2016. Richard said he had never seen it before and that I had made his brother very happy.
