November 24 – Today in my family tree

And now back on track, here is the actual blogpost for today ;)

November 24, 1963 Jack Ruby shoots Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged killer of John F. Kennedy

And on November 24, 1859 Charles Darwin publishes “On the Origin of Species”, his theory of evolution.

And on my family tree we celebrate the birth of Emma Wilhelmine Friederike KÄHLER on November 24, 1884 as the oldest of four children from Wilhelm Heinrich Burghard KÄHLER and Elisabeth Dorothea Auguste MEYER in Büttlingen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Her christening was four days later on November 28, 1884 in Diedrichshagen. In the same church she received her lutheranian confirmation on March 26, 1899.

The 1900 census shows her as a farm domestic in Büttlingen:
