Notes from my interview with Verda Olsen

Goldy Verda Case, my paternal grandmother, was born on October 15, 1899 in Sheridan Township, Mecosta County, Michigan. Verda, as she was known, was the daughter of Edwin Case and Cynthia Loretta Green. She married Aden Loyal Springsteen on October 15, 1918 at her family’s home in Titus, Sheridan Township, Mecosta County. Aden died on March 6, 1941 from injuries sustained as a passenger in a car-train collision. After Aden’s death, Verda married Fred Olsen on July 22, 1945 at Sheridan, Montcalm County, Michigan. Fred died on January 19, 1975. Verda died at Greenville, Montcalm County on July 27, 1984.

I am sharing notes here that I wrote to augment my recorded interview with Grandma Olsen in July 1980. If you can read my handwriting from 36 years ago these notes might help in understanding our conversation:

Following Our Heritage

How can you tell when something new has been posted to Our Heritage? The obvious answer is to point your web browser to http://www.ourheritage.info. However, you might get tired of checking just to find out that there’s nothing new. Fortunately, there’s an easy solution to that problem: use a service that collects posts from this and any other web log (blog) that you want to follow.

For example, you might use Feedly to follow blog feeds from web sites. You can set up a free Feedly account quite easily if you are familiar with online access and your computer or mobile device. You can use either a new Feedly ID or your Facebook or Google ID. You can access Feedly either in your web browser or with a Feedly app.

To follow Our Heritage in Feedly, use the link or button to add content. Type www.ourheritage.info in the search box to find this blog, select it from the results list, and add it to your Feedly subscriptions (Feedly+).

Why would you want to use a service like Feedly rather than going straight to our web site? The answer is that Feedly collects new posts from this and any other blogs you are following whenever something new is posted. If you want to follow several sites, Feedly or any similar service provides one-stop shopping. If an article is interesting, click or tap the article title to read it. If you want to see even more, you can click or tap a button or link to open the web site in your browser.

How can you tell when something new has been posted? It will show up in Feedly.
