Second-hand Store Find: Green Family Cookbook

Earlier this week, while searching through the books at our local second-hand store, I came upon Green Family Cookbook – Food, Family & Friends published July 2010.

A handwritten note inside read, “For Bryan. Put together by Auntie Irene Green. Ross. Formatted by Cheryl Green. Frank.”

The book contains a collection of recipes by family members. However, what makes this book valuable are the historical family images between each section.

I have no connection to the Green family, but I love connecting genealogists with pieces of their family history. I bought the book for $1.00 with the intentions that I’d find someone with this Green family in their family tree.

Names and dates are noted with the images, but few places are mentioned. One was Spokane, Washington. It was a below a picture of Charles and Ruth Leonard, who were seniors at the time and displaying a row of fish. It was taken about 1965 – 1970. Above it is a picture of the couple at the wedding of Richard and Sharon Leonard, c.1960.

I’ll post images from the book below to help identify those in this Green family. I am located in Nova Scotia, Canada, but I do not know if this Green family settled here originally or members of the family moved in from other places in North America.

The book is in excellent condition with only a little wear. If you are connected to this family and would like to have the book, the only cost is my $1.00 for the purchase and the cost of postage to mail it to you.

It contains 140 pages and consists of recipes, images and four pages at the end of each section for notes (where you can add your own family recipes). The cover is laminated.

UPDATE (November 23, 2021): A new owner has been found for the book.
