I recently moved and am downsizing my collection of nun dolls. They are from various places all with accurate habits. I thought I would post here first to see if any of my readers are interested. If not, I will be putting them up a few at a time on eBay. I hate to divest myself of the collection but, I moved to a smaller home and I always want to raise money for what I am really interested – preserving photos. So, the money will go to purchasing archival papers and boxes.
If you are interested in an order, write to me and I will let you know what I have and the price. I can be reached with more ease at firstname.lastname@example.org
I recently had a request to identify a photo. I am stumped, so I am posting it here in the hopes that someone may be able to identify the order. Here is an excerpt from the letter:
“I was wondering if you would be able to identify the order of nuns, that would have worn the habit shown in the attached photograph. It could have been taken between 1904 and 1940 – I’m not sure. I do know that one of the sisters was born in 1886 in Ireland. So, I’m not even sure if this photo was taken in Ireland or the US, but I do know that she had been in Missouri around 1900, then left to go overseas and returned to the US in 1912 – her destination was the Sacred Heart Convent in St. Louis, MO.”
My website statistics tell me that I get quite a few hits both at this blog and at my associated website. I am, however, often unable to complete new entries on a timely basis.
As a result, I am hoping to invite some guest bloggers to do some new postings. Of course, I the authors will receive credit and would be able to post any disclaimers in their posting (such as the opinions of the author do not necessarily reflect the opinions found on this blog).
The opinions of the guest authors do not necessarily reflect my opinion.
I knew one of our readers would eventually be able to identify the order of the sister shown in the previous post. I recently received this e-mail:
Seems like your missing nun is a member of the Sisters of St. Martha in Canada.
Hope this helps you.
I recently received a very nice e-mail from a lady seeking information on her aunt who was a member of a religious order. She is hoping to find out which order her aunt belonged.
“My husband said that she belonged to an order “back east” but as the family lived in Taber Alberta, that could be almost anywhere.
Her name was Frances Malo and she was born around 1915.”
She attached the following photos:
