Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

My Family Tree courtesy of The Munson Foundation.

I sure picked a family that had data available. Several years ago I started work on my family tree. I have found my American paternal grandfathers back to my 8th great grandfather. Boy I must be a great genealogist, right? Wait a moment, I must admit that this 3000 page five volume set of books on my ancestors helped.


My father is mentioned in Volume III. The books have lots of information on my New England ancestors. There are photos and lots of interesting stories. 


This is a copy of the document that established New Haven, Connecticut. It was signed on June 4, 1639. My 8th great grandfather Thomas  Munson signed it. His signature has a hand pointing  at it.


These books are published by The Munson Foundation. I have joined the foundation. I owe my family tree success to them.
